Tips on installing the 7 speed revoshift sis shifter

Obviously, you must remove old shifter. With old cable removed, make sure you derailleur is on the smallest gear (7). String cable through cable housing, checking to see if there is any tight spots. The tight spots are places in the housing where the cable doesn't move freely. These are rust or bad spots in the housing, If you have a bit of problem, put some oil in the housing work it back and forth. If you have several problems consider replacing housing.
Now back to the installation, you gave the cable through the housing, set shifter on 7 or highest gear. Simply tighten cable at the derailleur. Tighten the derauiluer cable bolt. Check your work by running through the gears, if shifter doesn't shift thru all gears, check for slack in the cable. If slack, redo the operation again. If you continue to have problem, consider your local bike shop for assistance.

My 89 vw cabriolet automatic wont go into gear after towing it replacing filters and shifter cable

My first thought is bent shifter forks or linkage is off. Start with the linkage as it is easier. Shifter forks are internal tranny components.

Gears are in the wrong order after manual shifter cables replacement

Did you make sure the gear stick was in the same position when you fixed the new parts and parts are tight enough.
Or take cover off gear stick in car where it goes into the selector and reset the gears from there.

Dura ace brifters very sticky

You can squirt them with a spray lubricant (bicycle lubricant) to free them up if it is just a dirt issue, you need to pull the brake lever to expose the internal gearing mechanism, don't take anything apart.

If your shifter part is sticky, this usually clears things up. If it does not make trace through the derailleur cable and make sure it's not the cable hanging up instead of your shifter. Replace the cable and housing as necessary.

If its the brake lever, smae check of the cable system but also check the brake itself. The lever will feel sticky when there is a snag in the cable or if the brake is no longer returning with the same spring tension.

After that you can have them rebuilt or replaced. Depends on which model you have 8, 9, 10 (7800, 7900) as too the exact recommendation.

Take the fuse out of #115 that will take you out of diagnostic mode. When you put it in reverse and it doesn't move then see what code comes up on the dash and follow up with me.
