2010 holden cruze diesel. stuck in park, keys are stuck in ignition. have no brake tail lights no windscreen washer 12 volt socket in car and the boot is locked. please help.

The stuck in park is easy disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the selector red by two notches (by hand) this will place the transmission in neutral if there is resistance chock the wheels release the handbrake and rock the car ( back and forward to take load off the parking parking pawl which is stuck) no electrics is because of the ignition position remove the ignition switch from the column this isolates from the ignition lock and manually move the slide until the engine starts (make sure the hoot & hand brake are applied in case you ******* up the selector job and left it in gear. once the engine starts reconnect the transmission linkage. restart the engine and run the selector through the gears if all is OK.either cut the old ignition lock off the steering column and replace or get a locksmith to remove the key and then re-cut a new key from the spare or from the manufacturers code. all done

4wd light flickers but no 4wd on isuzu trooper 3.1 conversion

no YEAR, now that is a challenge.... impossible...
conversion what does that mean, a modification
car is not stock? we cant do custom cars, that be impossible.
that takes genius level hands on work.

is this PART time 4wd
or that TOD systems....
by what method did you prove 4wd works (the lamp means nothing to me, only real live 4wd actions matter)

the dash cluster if it has this wild looking 4wd graphics, that be TOD. got that?
part time only works in ice/snow/dirt.
and never on dry pavement free of ice.
so are you testing on dirt? (off road, anything)
you can also do some test on jack stands
check front prop shaft ,see if it is locked up in 4wd, engine off
but you never said what transmission.
ok a/t in park. 4wd engaged.
or m/t in any gear, 1st gear best.

if that test passes, the we check that the front axle locks up.
1 step at a time.
but i dont know what you have there "full driveline option specs"

How do i set the timing of victa altima lawnmower,i just want to know where the mark of crank shaft and cam shaft must point? it is a one piston engine with two valves

There is a mark on crank gear, and there is a mark on cam gear. These two marks may be a circle, a dot, a triangle or possibly something else. The idea is two marks must be placed together for gear timing to be correct. I hope this is what you are asking. Please let me know how you make out. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Look under shifter linkage for a cotter pin that connects shift lever to transmission. If this is out or linkage is bent this could be your problem. If these parts are ok you most likely have internal damage to transmission.

Victa Turfmaster gear selector. I have had the mower back to the dealer three times to fix different aspects of the selector mechanism.

How old is the mower? If its under warrenty, I'd request a new selector completely! Is it commercial or residential grade?

Makis- is it possible to get 'taller' 4th and 5th gear -stwdst

Changing FINAL drive easy with chain or belt drive - difficult/impossible with a driveshaft. Final drive affects all gears/engine speeds.Possible aftermarket "taller" 4 & 5 th gears available, but not likely.Another/similar model have the same transmission? Is the bike made in a touring ("open road")model? Touring may have taller gears.Perhaps different ratios/gears from another year of same model.Good independent shop may have knowledge of this situation -if a fix is available.Dealers - likely not
