are you sure it is transmission and not your diff both can do this which ever one it is tho needs to be rebuilt or replaced
I read in another forum that it might be the brakelight switch that is making the shift lock, lock up.
Check your clutch fluid level or your automatic transmission fluid level.
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'.
If the Aerostar is not set for auto lock when the vehicle is put into gear, check the door lock, switch. Also check the lock relay and wiring for a possible short.
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. There are electronics in the transmission and sensors that have detected a problem. I hate to say this but the transmission has to be rebuilt or changed.
The transmission computer has detected a malfunction and set a code. It will lock into second gear until the fault is repaired. You will need to have the system checked with a scan tool.The transmission computer has detected a malfunction and set a code. It will lock into second gear until the fault is repaired.

his is a trick question.. there is no "park" with a manual transmission.. either it's in gear, or it's in neutral.
An automatic transmission can lock in a Honda for several reasons. The most common problem is with the shift solenoids. These parts allow the transmission to shift and when one is malfunctioning the gearbox may not go into gear.
The transmission computer defaults to second gear when it detects a fault and sets a trouble code
Transmission lock pin either "Park" auto, or "reverse std. not aligned properly due to wear?
700r4 gear shift lever want lock in place
You need to clairify your question. The transmission stays in high gear, or are you saying the locking torque converter stays locked up?
i'm assuming your talking about an automatic transmission? if so, you may have a tourque convertor issue.
some cars have a 'shift lock' mechanism, you insert your car key into the 'shift lock' machanism to unlock the gear, restart your car to drive to nearest repair shop.
It's below the gear selector lock button on the automatic transmission cosole shift
Have the transmission computer checked for codes. It will lock into 2nd gear when a malfunction is detected.
In Metal Gear Online, go to Gameplay Options, then under the Camera Direction After Switch/2D tab, choose Lock-On Settings. Then enable that setting. In-game, press the square button to turn Auto-Aim on.
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.
Does the torque converter lock? It should lock on both 3rd and 4th gear. How are the engine temperature and temp gauge? The 4T60-E requires decent temp information to run normally, othw it goes to "limp mode" and will not engage 4th nor lock. T
AnswerLarger diameter tires will alter your speedometer reading unleds you replace the existing speedometer gearing with on that has the proper ratio. My 2001 Dodge 3500 has 4 wheel anti lock brakes and my speedometer is adjusted with the anti lock brake controller which is programed to the tire size and the rear end gear ratio. If you have this setup you may have to go to the Dodge Dealer to get the controller reprogrammed.
In my 1991 525i auto it can. The ignition turns off and the steering will lock if turned. Bad idea.
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.
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.
