What does the switch do by the gear shift in a suzuki sidekick with auto transmission?

Since no year was specified I can only guess it is the Transmission Lock. The transmission has a lock-out that stops taking the transmission from going out of Park unless the Brake is applied. BUT if there is a need to put the car in Neutral MANUALLY, say because of a complete electrical failure, a MANUAL RELEASE is provided on the Automatic Shifter Housing to Manually activate and remove it from park. That is what you are calling a 'switch'.

I had the same problem with my 96 Grand Voyager. When the transmission has a problem it will lock in first gear as not to leave you stranded in the middle of nowhere.

Where is location of vehicle speed sensor on 1999 Mercury Cougar?

99 Mercury Cougar 2.5L V6 Manual Transmission The VSS is located on the transmission. From under the vehicle find the lower O2 sensor toward the rear of the vehicle--look up, it is a black box looking thing on top of the transmission housing (kind of hard to see). Mine did not have a bolt it unscrewed. Also, Mine had a pin with a lock. Take a screw driver and pick up on the lock toward the rear of the vehicle and pull the pin out toward the front of the vehicle. Now, Lift up on the shaft that the VSS was attached to and pull out the aluminum housing and gear. My VSS shaft broke (plastic) and it fused with the gear (plastic). Still do not know the cause but if it happens again I will pull the transmission. Found a new gear at Tacoma Speedometer $9 and a VSS at Oreilly's $24.

How do you change the speedometer after increasing tire size on dodge ram 1500?

AnswerYou don't actually change out the speedometer. you need to change the spedometer gear if you go to your local 4x4 shop or dodge dealer they can do the math and order you a new gear and install it. On my 2001 Dodge 3500 the abs controller has to be reprogrammed if you increase the stock tire size. The controller is programed according to the rear end gear ratio and the tire size. Mine has 4 wheel anti lock brakes.

2000 Ford Focus se transmission won't shift why?

Not really enough info given to diagnose your problem. BUT, here's a possibility: IF it is an automatic transmission AND it won't shift out of second gear - second gear is a safety default called the "limp-home" mode. If the transmission is failing it will automatically lock into that gear so that you will at least be be able to get it to home or a repair facility. Transmissions are usually NOT a do-it-yourslef item, and it will probably have to be diagnosed by a mechanic.
