Make sure you are in neutral first. This is to stop people from selecting reverse when they aren't in control.

SOURCE: Reverse override button doesn't seem to change anything

The override button on your Yamaha isn't supposed to override reverse. It will only disengage the rev limiter while moving forward when you have the "Diff Lock" engaged. When this happens, you will see your speedometer change to zeros. If you want to override your reverse, you will need to rewire a few things. I found the info I needed at "" to rewire mine.

1999 chrysler 300M won't shift out of park. Pulled so ******* the shifter it broke.

possible internal locking pawl stuck fault or adjustment required

sourced from another forum

The park interlock cable is part of the brake/shift lever interlock system. Correct cable adjustment is important to proper interlock operation. The gear shift and park lock cables must both be correctly adjusted in order to shift out of PARK.


1. Remove floor console as necessary for access to the park lock cable.

2. Shift the transmission into the PARK position.

3. Turn ignition switch to LOCK position. Be sure ignition key cylinder is in the LOCK position. Cable will not adjust correctly in any other position.
NOTE: If the key will not turn to the LOCK position, pull up on the cable lock button and manually move the cable in and out until the key can be turned to the LOCK position.

4. Pull cable lock button up to release cable, if necessary.

5. Remove and discard the cable adjuster lock pin, if a new cable is being installed.

6. Ensure that the cable is free to self-adjust by pushing cable rearward and releasing.

7. Push lock button down until it snaps in place. The lock should be 1-2mm below the surface of the cylindrical portion of the cable

I have a Yamaha grizzly 300 I think it's a 300 but the lever that goes from reverse to forward won't let me go into reverse its like its stuck

Hi Trent, you may have a faulty cable sensor or the brake pedal has a cable that runs up to the "shift box" take the boot off the top of the shift box and where that cable goes in there is a metal "stud" that keeps it from going in reverse. When you press the brake pedal that stud releases allowing you to shift into reverse. I am willing to bet, that stud is seized up. On the bottom of the shift box there is a drain plug Take it out and spray some WD40 or something similar on the stud to try to get it to release. Good luck. You may have to pry on the stud to get it to go in and stays in. I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha but despair not for a mere $10 you can download another one. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day.

Brake pedal

go to rear of car and wiggle, pull, push on the cables that go into the rear brakes. Sometimes this is all that needs to be done to release the brakes, then I suggest lubricate the brake cables, and/or inspect rear brakes. If this don't help, you could try to use some warm water and pour it over your brake drums, as snow and ice can freeze them up. Try a hairblower if its below freezing. If your brakes are not locked up, make sure your pedal return spring is working properly, sometimes its on the pedal, but most times its under car attached to the cables somewhere.

Im pretty sure the handbrake cable on my 2004 Jetta has broken, is this an easy fix or should i consult a mechanic?

here is the procedure from there are no special tools, but you need to be handy. Judge for yourself.

Removal & Installation

  1. Raise and safely support the rear wheels.
  2. On Front Wheel Drive models, remove the heat shield above the exhaust in the center tunnel.
  3. Locate the threaded adjusters. On All Wheel Drive (AWD) models, they are located in the front of the lower control arms, on Front Wheel Drive (FWD) vehicles, they are located in the tunnel on the underbody of the vehicle.
  4. Remove the locking clip between the hex nut and the adjustment housing.
  5. Counter hold the hex nut with a 13mm wrench and thread the adjustment housing to loosen the cable until the adjustment housing is fully loosened, then slide the 2 portions of the cable toward one another.
  6. Remove the lock clip at the brake caliper and remove the cable, taking care to not damage the cable boot.
  7. On Front Wheel Drive models, remove the heat shield above the muffler and push aside.
  8. Remove the cables from the cable brackets. Should the assembly aid fall out it is not necessary to reinstall it.
  9. Using a suitable flat blade screwdriver, remove the cables from the retaining bracket at the under body tunnel where the cables enter the interior of the vehicle.
  10. Remove the rear portion of the center console, then using a suitable flat blade screwdriver, push the cables toward the parking brake lever and press the cable ball end out of the bracket.
  11. From under the vehicle, press the guide sleeve-locking element together and pull the cables out of the guide sleeve.
To install:
  1. Guide the parking brake cables through until the guide sleeve locks into place.
  2. If not previously removed, remove any plastic parts at the hand brake lever adjustment bracket as they are not needed for installation.
  3. Using a No. 2 flat-blade screwdriver, lock the adjustment bracket at the hand brake lever to prevent it from turning.
  4. Insert the cable end ball through the mounting in the adjustment bracket, making sure the cable locks into place in the bracket.
  5. Working under the vehicle, route the cables through their routing brackets and attach them to the brake caliper.
  6. The balance of installation is in reverse order of removal noting the following:
  7. Adjust the parking brake cable and check its operation.
Disc Brakes
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Release the parking brake. It may be necessary to unscrew the adjusting nuts to provide slack in the brake cable.
  3. At each rear wheel brake caliper, remove the spring clip retaining the parking brake cable to the caliper.
  4. Lift the cable from the caliper mount and disengage it from the parking brake lever.
  5. Pull the cables out from under the vehicle.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal.
  7. Adjust the parking brake as described at the beginning of this section.
Drum Brakes
  1. Block the front wheels and release the hand brake.
  2. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle.
  3. Remove the rear brake shoes.
  4. Remove the brake cable assembly from the back plates.
  5. Remove the cable adjusting nuts at the handle and detach the cable guides from the floor pan.
  6. Pull the cables out from under the vehicle.
  7. Installation is the reverse of removal. Adjust the parking brake and road test the vehicle.

Chrysler sebring is locked in park

Had this happen to me yesterday.  Remove the liner in the cup holder.  There is a hole that you can stick your finger in to push the gear release lever forward.  If that does not work, pull up the chrome bezel around the gear shift.  there is a pink piece of plastic attached to a spring, push that down and towards the rear of the car and you should be able to shift freely until you put it in park again.  Make sure the car is running and your foot is on the brake while trying either solution.

Stuck in park

There are actually 2 pink release buttons. The one at the right rear of the shifter is the brake interlock. The other one is at the left front with a cable attached to it and it is the reverse lockout. There are 2 steps to getting out of P. Try it without pressing the brake and you'll notice that you can't even move the stick to the right to leave P. Press the brake (or press the pink brake interlock tab down) and you'll be able to move the stick to the right and a little bit back toward R but you won't be able to get into R. That's where the other pink piece comes in. Push this pink piece straight towards the rear of the car and you'll bypass the reverse lockout.

This gets you moving but now to figure out why the reverse lockout is not working correctly. Anyone know the solution?

2006 Altima won't shift into reverse or park

Is there any warning lights or malfunction besides this?? There are three main parts that may cause this: Park/Neutral safety switch(located on the transmission), Brake pedal switch(located at the brake pedal), Shift lock solenoid(located below the shifter). P/N safety switch prevents the shifter from shifting out of (P) or shifting into (R/P) while vehicle is in motion. Brake pedal switch sends a signal to release the shifter lock to shift out of park. Shift lock, locks the shifter as describe above and is located at the shifter base. I recommend inspection/replacement of the shift lock solenoid and P/N safety switch as its an intermitted problem. Hopefully this helps

Transmission shifts hard

The first thing to do on thoes Automatic Overdrives is to reset the Throttle Valve cable. At the throttle valve assy. find the cable at the rear (that goes down to the transmission). You don't have to take the cover off, but only if you want to. Place the transmission in neutral and set the parking brake. At the cable take a pocket screwdriver and pry the locking mechanism up. Its a little knurled so it dosen't slip when you push it back down with your thumb. With that up and the cable feels extremly loose grab an assistant. You and them go under the truck and at the shift shaft you both will find the Throttle Valve lever located outside of the shift shaft. Have your assistant pull that lever to the rear of the transmission with 8 lbs of force. Then you go back to the locking mechanism you just pulled up. While your assistant is holding that lever back take your thumb and push that locking mechanism down. Next, have your assistant let go and leave from under the truck. Put your throttle valve assy. dust cover back on (if you decided to remove it). Place your transmission back in park, then release the parking brake. Shut the hood. After that you will not be able to feel one single shift take place.
