Not sure of the question, but if your car is less than 7 yrs old, apply the brake first, then you can move the shift selector.
hmmm unlock to shift from park? Over drive off/on?
I have a similar issue my '88 accord LXI automatic does not have reverse and it grinds in park and drive. Told the shift fork in the transmission and shift for bushing are going out and the tranny needed to be rebiult
I have a 1999 Ford Ranger with an automatic transmission, two wheel drive 3.0,V 6. The problem is in the reverse shift with no response...how do I correct this problem?
Check to make that the brake lights are working - shift interlock is in the same circuit - could ba a bad fuse. You can try turning the key (with engine off) o to the first position (Unlock) shift to neutral to start vehicle and then shift to "Drive or Reverse"
car will jerk forward and then go in reverse
Simply start the vehicle with the shift lever in the Park position. If you wish to go backward place the shift lever in the R location. When you're ready to move forward place the shift lifter in the D position. Only shift from park to reverse or to drive when the vehicle is sitting still.
Check your Automatic Transmission fluid level
are you pressing the brake as you try to shift?
Yes, well I can do it on my car
does it shift into reverse and wont drive? if so its your tranny it needs to be replaced
Could be a universal joint. If front wheel drive, it could be the constant velocity joint. I am assuming you have an automatic transmission. If it is a standard transmission, it could be the throwout bearing.
Check to see if brake lights are workingShift interlock and brake lights are on common circuitCheck fuse Try turning key to 1st (unlock) position without engine runningShift to neutral to start and then shift to Drive or Reverse
Check to see if the stop lights are working--same circuit as the shift interlock, Perhaps blown fuse? Try turning the key to 1st position, shifting to neutral to start vehicle and then shift to Drive or Reverse
Check to see if brake lights are working shift interlock is wired to this circuit If they are not check fuses As a immediate fix turn key to 1st position (Unlock) shift to neuttral to start car and then you should be able to shift to reverse or drive
Generally shifting from reverse to drive, while still rolling, is possible but not recommended. This places a lot of stress on the transmission and other components of the drive train.
there is none.....drive a stick shift
Stick shift, yes. Automatic, no.
Park, reverse, neutral, Drive and low
cant take off from drive got to manually shift automatic tranny
No, put it in D (Drive) and forget it.
clutch plates could be welded to gather
pull the lever back to the "H" position. if it doesnt shift put your truck in reverse and pull back about a foot or so then put it back in drive and it should work. if all that fails it is broke. come to a complete stop, then put it in neutral and it should knock right out of low. If that doesnt work try reverse. answer if that doesnt work, unlock the front hubs then put in high, doesnt mean it is broke as first answer suggests
You have to step on the brake pedal to shift to any gear from "Park"
If it is a standard shift and not an automatic, yes as long as you put it in neutral. If it is an automatic you can disconnect the drive shaft. Otherwise you cannot tow it or you will damage the transmission as it will overheat.
