Hi.

If the engine dies completely when you put in gear, check the kickstand switch. This can be tested jumping its contacts, the problem should disappear.

If instead the bike is running only with choke on, that is a carburetor problem. Check mixture regulation, eventually check fuel filter, air filter and fuel lines and clean the carburetor body.
This bike is known for having very lean settings from factory (carburetor mixing little fuel and more air). Read this article on the G5 carb problem.

Gear shifter is in Park, but dash reads it's in Reverse. Car won't turn over because it is in Reverse now.


You have to locate where the park ignition switch is located. Some are on the transmission and some are in the column under the dash. It probably got moved.

CAN NOT MOVE SHIFTER TO ANOTHER POSITION


Changing the switch behind the brake pedal will solve your problem,you can try to clean it with any electrical contact cleaner, I had the same problem and it worked for some time, then I had to change it . I wish you luck.

Can you tell me the amps on fuse #16 on a 2004 Ford F150 FX4? My shifter has zero resistance when I try and put the truck in gear. So I cannot get it into reverse or drive at this time. Wondering if it...


Fuse 16 is a 10 amp fuse. It goes to the ABS module (run/start power). You also have fuse 33 (15 Amp) Shift solenoid. Both fuses are mini fuses.

My 2002 GMC ENVOY SLT is stuck in reverse and I can't get it start or move out of reverse. Is this an electrical problem?


If its stuck in reverse then it wont start, this could be a bad tranny or the shift cable broke or came loose, theres a braket under the dash that holds the shift cable before it connects to the shifter linkage arm and that braket sometimes gets loosened up and the other problem is the shifter tube may have broken. a good way to see if its the tranny or the shifter asm is to get under the truck make sure to block wheels and put e-brake on. dissconnect linkage at the tranny and move the selecter arm on the tranny, if it in reverse then it should move o click in one direction which is park and the other way is into neutral then drive and so on, try to get it into park and seeif truck starts, if it does then its not the tranyy but rather it the shifter, another thing before doing that have someone turn key on but dont try to start it just move the shifter and se if it moves the arm on the trany, you will see this from under the side of truck on driverside. good day.

Car will start fine, brakes work but once in drive or reverse will not move, think its the transmission. Car has 350k km.


When you move the shifter into the position P,R,N,D does the indicator on the gauge light up. For example in "P" the P indictor light up, "R" the R indicator light up and so on.
If it does then you might have a bad transmission.
If the indicator stay in one position only even when you' move your shifter back and forth. You might have a broken link cable from the shifter to the trans.

Wont shift out of reverse,but the shifter moves up and down freel


your linkage on the transmission must be off. try having someone move the shifter while you watch the linkage arms under the car on the trans to make sure its all intact. it could be a loose or broken bolt on the trans causing it to not disengage from reverse this will cause it to not start.

Car stops moving in reverse gear


Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
