SOURCE: wont start or turn over but makes a clicking sound

when you hear a clicking sound it means your battery voltage is too low The battery posts and clamps need to be cleaned and put back together. Did you leave lights on or something to kill the battery? Or is the battery not charging? You may need a new battery and a new voltage regulator. Is the belt tight? Is the alternator producing a voltage or is it time to get it serviced or replaced? These are rhetorical questions of course.

is it a Vitara or a Sidekick
Sidekick is USA /Canada, Vitara is rest of world name for same car. as is Geo Tracker.(usa/can)

for all gears. that is bad shifter parts a $5 fix.
means car starts in gear, but will not move ever.
that means a false neutral, is selected.

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 ?

1999 Lincoln continental car wont move in gear

1,.Make sure your key is inserted all the way into your ignition switch. It if is not, you will not be able to move the shifter. Make sure it is all the way in by turning it to the "Run" position and waiting for the engine to engage.
2. Press the brake pedal after you start your car and before you try to move your shifter. Most cars do not allow you to move the shifter if you are not pressing the brake pedal.
3. Clean the panels around the shifter. Often these can accumulate dirt or sticky debris that can prevent you from shifting into gear.
4. Remove the console cover over the shifter by unscrewing the corners and popping it off. You can then make sure there is nothing underneath preventing you from shifting.
5. Press the override button at the base of the shifter if it is not working properly.

2003 explorer wont shift out of park engine starts , gear shift will not move

Your shift lock actuator is not working. This system works off of the brake light circuits. The FIRST thing to check is your brake lamps. If they are not working, that is the reason for your shifter not working. Fix the brake lamps and your shifter will shift. (Possible defective brake lamp switch).

If your brake lamps are working, then the shift lock solenoid or its circuits are defective. In this case, you can work around the problem until you can get it fixed. Turn the ignition switch one click.(Far enough to unlock the steering wheel, but not far enough to make the lights on the instrument cluster illuminate.) The shifter will then shift out of PARK. Place the shifter in NEUTRAL and start the engine. You can then shift to the desired gear to get where you need to go. If you place the shifter back in PARK, you will have to shut the ignition off and repeat the process.

4.2l. Why is shifter stuck?

With the car started press on the brake pedal. Listen carefully for a "Click" sound coming from under the gear shift cover. If you do not hear one you will need to test the brake pedal switch, if you hear a click then most likely the lock somehow became disconnected from the solenoid. Remove the shifter cover and the assemble is can be seen for troubleshooting and repair.
