That happen to me, and A guy helped me. The problem maybe down by the brake pedal, but above the brakes you may have pulled the wires a loose with your feet, or something and the wires need to be put back together maybe with black electrical tape. Definitley have to go down to the floor, and look under where the brake pedal is.

SOURCE: Car wont move.

Could be that your linkage is broken and just looks like it is shifting or a bad tranny module or tranny but i would look at the linkage and see if it is hooked up to the tranny.

SOURCE: My 2002 Mercury Sable will not shift into gear,

Wasn't there a recall for the sensor/part that keeps the gear shift from moving when your foot is not on the brake? Did you ever take your car back to have this replaced?

We have 2005 mercury sable. Horn was not working but you could hear the relay clicking inside the vehicle when pressing the horn button, and the fuse was fine. I found the horn by looking under the vehicle behind the driver side headlamp. Tapped on the horn with a wench and IT WORKED AGAIN!

2000 ford mercury 3.0, shifter wont move. had a fender bender, put it into park and it wouldn't come back out.



For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

For more troubleshooting, I suggest you to get the Following help link checked, its complete step by step procedure to inspect gear shift issues: -----

My blazer won't shift into any gears, only park. When I try to go into R or D or any gear, it shifter just goes up and down, like it's not catching. What could the problem be?


If the shifter feels loose, then the linkage may have come disconnected at the transmission. If you look under the vehicle, you should be able to see where is hooks up on the left side of the transmission.

2000 sable- can't shift out of park. shifter glides and needle on dash moves there's no gears shifting. is the transmission blown?


That is what it sounds like. I would check the transmission fluid level. I f it is full, you probably need a transmission. If it is low or out of fluid, then you need to find the leak, repair it, and cross your fingers and hope there is no permanent damage to the transmission.

Not likely a blown transmission. More of a shifter cable issue. There is an adjustment nut on the ****** end. It could be loose or missing. If the nut is fine you have a broken cable.

My Sable will turn on fine but when i try shifting the gear they won't go in the shifter just glides along and the car remains idle. The day it started doing this it made a loud screeching noise and...


If the shifter moves but does not feel like it is trying to put car in gear the cable that goes from the shifter to the transmition could have broke or came loose. If that happened while driving the gears may have tried to shift when tension was released from the cable.

2003 Mercury Sable will not move in any of the gears. It went from working perfectly to not moving in forward or reverse. It has 121,000 miles on it.


It sounds like it can be either very cheap or very expensive to fix. If you know a little about cars look under the hood at the transmission which is behind the engine.

The engine should only crank in Park and Neutral. If the engine cranks in any gear the shifter is not attached to the cable anymore. The shifter or cable is broken.

You should see something like a shift cable attached to a stem coming out the transmission. You need to determine if the cable moves or rods move. You may need to look under the floor shift too! If either end is not moving when the shifter is moving, then you just need a shift cable.

However, if the transmission levers are moving and the engine cranks only in Park or Neutral then it is the transmission.
