when my car wouldn't shift it was because the cat.converter was cloged
If the transmission won't shift out of first gear on a 1992 Buick Roadmaster, it could indicate the transmission gears are seized. It can also indicate a low fluid level.
If you are talking about the Drive,Reverse Low indicator on the dash above steering it is a simple cable opperated unit which attaches to the part of the colum that moves when you shift gears.Held by a clip that came off or broke...Rick D
Short circuit somewhere in the reverse-light or even the reverse switch itself. Other causes are also possible.
check your cross member on the gear selector it sometimes pops off
shift to nutral,then move lever to reverse
The increased idle when started is normal, all properly working cars that aren't ancient will do it. As far as the hard shift goes, your tranny.
2003 Honda 450 es Forman will not shift into reverse?
The 1998 Buick Century shift solenoid is located on the top of the transmission. The shift solenoid can be access through the shifting console.
check fluid in tranie....and LUCAS tranie lube
I am having a similar problem on my 1991 Park Aenue, where at times I cannot shift out of park either into reverse, neutral, or reverse. I took it in to the dealer and they determined that it was the solenoid which they are now tring to replace (from another state). Could that be your own prolbem too, even though it is a different model.
I have no idea what went wrong. Take it to a trans shop.
I had a similar problem where it would shift into reverse or drive but not go immediately. Or sometimes it would drop out of gear and you'd have to rev up to get it to fall back into gear. i replaced the transmission filter and it fixed the problem.
cuz it wont silly!
where is the reverse light switch located on a 2002 jetta with a stick shift
car will jerk forward and then go in reverse
Probably the shift linkage in that model.
i cannot shift from 3 to reverse my cable line for the shifting is disconnected and don't know where it suppose to go
GP shift is the reverse of street shift.....so 1st is up the rest down.
on the valve body
Check your fuses
To shift the recon into reverse push the red button at the right break lever labeled "R" down and pull the lever back. Then shift down using the down arrow on the electric shift. Reverse light should come on and back you go.
are you pressing the brake as you try to shift?
