Car shifts into gear but does not move. At first we had a hard time just getting the gear shifter to move.


. Vehicles have a shifter interlock device that keeps it from being shifted into gear without your foot stepping on the brake pedal . These systems do fail . It's all electrically controlled . Forcing it will just break it , maybe the shifter cable broke . Look at the transmission were the cable hooks up an have another person move the shifter , does it move at the transmission ?
Now the car won't start how ? When you turn the key to the start position does anything happen ? Like engine spins over but doesn't start , or doesn't do anything ?

2002 dodge durango wont shift out of park


Put your foot on the brakes and have someone see if you have brake lights.This has a shift interlock that uses the brake lights to complete the circuit that unlocks the shifter from park. You can bypass this saftey feature by applying brake, engine off key off and moving shifter to neutral then starting the engine Dont forget to fix your brake lights !!

My car wont shift out of 2nd gear.the shifting handle is sloppy and the clutch is working fine


if the clutch really is working, (lever at bell moves 3/4")
by fine, my guess, is you can take off from dead stop in2nd, right>?
then its a bad shifter. tip.
or linkage (end tranny extension housing)
or transmission actual core.(shift rails, or forks) or worse.
you do know ,that you can disconnect the linkage and test tranny.
by hand,
key off
leakage off
shift to neutral (read the FSM or alldata.com) for how. under M/T sections.
then key on start engine,clutch depressed, the lift pedel
car moves its stuck in 2nd, of not bad linkage.
can do all gears that way, use 2 people and do not stand infront of car doing test.
or put the front wheels up on stands. but do not get near them.
while engine is running.
btw some shifters have plastic parts that go bad in the shifter tip.

or ,
jack up car in front, can you now shift car in to neutral or any gear?
linkage tests.
remove shifter housing and below see the shifter, H pattern
sifter box mechanism.
see that. you can shift that by hand with any small wrench or
large screwdriver, if the works the parts on the end of the shifter
handle main shaft tip are bad.

My jeep wrangler 2008 - I shifted to reverse then to parking, when i release the breaks it kept going in reverse. So i turn off the engine. now it wont start the engine, neither the shifter will move


The shifter cable has broken more than likely ,Find the shift shaft on the transmission,,block the wheels and remove the shift cable from the shift shaft,put the gear shift in park,then shift the shift shaft in park,then it will start,Then of course you will have to replace the shift cable.

The gear shifter wont move when the car is on


I currently have the same problem. If the engine is running the shifter will not move from Park. If you turn the key to the accessories position, put the car in NEUTRAL and then start the engine it will then shift. I am led to believe that this issue has something to do with the brakes.

This has happened to me b4 when I first started driving the car. When I bought the car I had to replace the brakes all the way around and that's when the shifter problem arose.

My advice, check your brakes or have them checked.

Shifter wont shift the pickup into gear


Let's start with the basics. Key has to be in the ignition and ignition turned to the run postion. Battery has to be charged up. Brake pedal has to be depressed so the shifter will unlock, . If the shifter will not move, it could be several things. A faulty shifter unlock cylinder or wirng problem. A binding shiter cable or shift lever problem at transmission, or a problem with the shifter assembly on the steering column.

Car wont shift into gear


did you check that you still have brake lights ?

Ford has the shift interlock, so if you loose brake lamps, the shifter will not move out of park.

Quick test, turn the key to the on position ( do not start ), and see if the gear shifter will move to neutral.
