Question about 2003 BMW K 1200 LT

1 Answer

1988 K75S. Shift indicator says "2", but when racheted "down" to disengage (neutral), it shows "3". I can find a neutral notch with the shifter (confirned by rocking the bike), but the indicator continues to indicate "3". Of course, the starter remains disabled. What's happening? And, can I somehow jump the indicator to get it to start? Will I ruin the tranny by doing that? Jerry

John Deere 318. Why won't shifter move from neutral?


the dash is notched were the neutral posisition is , this notch (shift lever needs moved out of notch) is there for two reasons , the one you need to be concerned about is the clutch disconnect , this makes it impossible to shift into any direction without clutch pedal down , sometimes this lever will become bent and not press far enough for release arm of shift lever to allow its movement

love these little tractors , they got all the features of a bigger machine but with the size ease of a compact machine , for a small farm or big home garden there's nothing this machine cant do with the right attachments on it I sure wish JD still made em !

My 1997 Chevy Cavalier automatic transmission is stuck in neutral and the shifter just glides from park, won't engage in any gears.


If the shift handle moves extremely freely (more than normal), changes are that the shift cable has become disconnected from the shift lever. This would explain the indicator not moving out of neutral.
You will need to access the shift lever by removing the console cover. Once you access the shifter check the cable connection to the level. If the cable is broken, it will need replacement. If the cable clip has broken or fallen off, it will need to be reattached.

The transmission is in "D" but the tach is showing as if it's in "2". It's not shifting as it normally would in "D". I put it in "2" and it there's no change. I put it in park then neutral and that all...


Your shift indicator is simply stuck. Until you have the time to fix it, your best solution is to start from park then slowly shift to the next setting which is reverse, then neutral then park. All automatic transmissions shift pretty much the same which means you only have to move 3 notches the opposite way from park to be in drive. You don't need a shift indicator for that. Later you can replace the indicator with a dealer factory replacement.

How do I locate the ignition switch and remove it from my gmc sierra 1991 ignition switch


The ignition switch is located on the top of the steering column underneath the dash.

1. Remove the cover panel from under the steering column and you should see the bracket that holds up the steering column, but before you un-bolt the bracket to lower the steering column, you must remove the clip holding the shifter position indicator cable to the column. (put the shifter into drive and you should be able to see the screw that holds the shift indicator cable adjusting clip to the steering column)

2. Remove the bracket holding up the steering column and carefully let the steering column down as far as it will go, the steering wheel will probably be resting on the seat.

3. You should now be able to see the ignition switch on the top of the steering column, and the two mounting bolts. The high beam switch might share the upper ignition switch bolt, and you will then need to remove the high beam switch before you can remove the ignition switch.

4. Remove the ignition switch mounting bolts (usually 5/16 but I have also seen 11/32 and 3/8 size bolt heads used)

5. Remove the ignition switch by lifting straight up from the column to dis-engage the interlink rod from the ignition tumbler assembly, you should then be able to pull the ignition over towards you just enough to dis-connect the two wire connectors to the switch and then you can remove the old switch from the vehicle. (the interlink rod is sticking straight up from the steering column and it slides up and down with the operation of the key, it fits into a notch in the ignition switch and that is what actuates the switch)

6. Reverse procedure to install new switch, starting with re-connecting the wire connectors and be sure that the interlink rod goes into the notch in the ignition switch.

7. When the switch has been re-installed and is ready to be adjusted, turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position and hold the key in that position and slide the ignition switch up and down until it is in the on position and your dash lights come on, tighten up the ignition switch mounting bolts and then test the operation of the switch, and re-adjust if necessary until the switch operates properly.

8. Adjust the high beam switch by pulling back on the high beam lever and just taking up the slack in the actuator rod to the high beam switch, test the operation of the high beam switch and re-adjust if necessary.

9. When the steering column is bolted back up, re-attach and adjust the shifter position indicator by placing the shifter in neutral and slide the adjusting cable clip until the shift indicator is pointing in the neutral position, test the function of the shift indicator and adjust as necessary.

Transmission stuck in gear


dont know if i answered this one or not you have usually just slipped the gear shifter out of the notches in the transmission ( I heard there is a fixit kit for aprox $400 but never could justify) 1. take off the shift lever (3 bolts). 2. look in the hole and find out which one of the parts are not in line (all notches should be in the center of the hole to be in neutral) put gear selector in wth the tip in the slot or notch that is out of alignment. push down and try to move back to neutral.should move relatively easy.when all are lined up tighten back up (check your transmission fluid hydraulic fluid at this time as it is easiest to add it through the shifter hole. Full plug is located below the clutch pedal and fluid should come out when it is full.
