SOURCE: 1982 rabbit shift linkage

There is a plastic ball that is in the shift linkage that also wears and is usually not included in the shift linkage bushing kit. It is attached to a metal piece and is bolted to the shift linkage. This is generally the problem if you already replaced the bushings.

Sometimes the linkage is out of adjustment but I would make sure that the ball is not worn first. They generally cost $5.00 - $8.00 or so.

If you need to adjust the linkage you can try the following, but if the bushings or the ball is worn adjustment will not do any good.

There is an adjustment on the shift rod that goes from the shifter to the transmission. It is a rod slipped into a tube with a locking collar or clamp.

The way that I do this is to make sure that your vehicle is in 1st gear and then loosen the bolt on the clamp.

Make sure that the clamp is loose enough so that the shaft can slip in the tube. Put the shifter in the 1st gear position and then tighten the clamp.

You may need to fiddle with this a little to get it in just the right spot.

This is much easier if you have an assistant.

Overdrive light flashing, won't shift from first to second unless let off gas pedal


Transmission Control Switch (TCS)
The transmission control switch (TCS) is a momentary contact switch that allows the driver to cancel operation of 5th (overdrive) gear.
The TCS is located on the end of the selector lever.
When the driver initially presses the TCS a signal is sent to the powertrain control module (PCM).
The PCM uses the shift solenoids to disengage/disable 5th gear operation and activate the coast clutch.
At the same time the PCM illuminates the transmission control indicator lamp (TCIL), to notify the driver that 5th gear is canceled.
When the TCS is pressed again, 5th gear operation is enabled, the coast clutch is released and the TCIL is turned off.
Whenever the ignition is cycled (vehicle shut off then started again) the TCS is turned off and 5th gear will be enabled, even if the TCS had been on when the ignition was shut off.
Transmission Control Indicator Lamp (TCIL)
The transmission control indicator lamp (TCIL) is located in the instrument panel and is labeled O/D OFF. It is illuminated in conjunction with the transmission switch (TCS).
The TCIL will flash if the EPC solenoid circuit is shorted or a fault has been detected in a monitored sensor used for transmission operation.

Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
The operation of the transmission is controlled by the powertrain control module (PCM). Many input sensors provide information to the PCM. The PCM then controls actuators which determine transmission operation.

always get a second opinion from an accredited professional a transmission shop that works on your make of vehicle
may be a simple tcm /pcm or other electronic control module
To have the necessity to replace the box , the water would have had to get into the transmission or the mechanical/electronic sections
