On a 1998 Ford Taurus ; On the column shift the overdrive button is on the end of the gear shift lever On the console shift the overdrive button is on the drivers side of the gear selector lever below the button you have to press to shift out of PARK
check the brake pedal switch
700r4 gear shift lever want lock in place
I assume that is the button that allows you to turn off or turn on the overdrive for the transmission ( my Ford Explorer also has a button on the end of the gear shift lever for that purpose )
isn,t that the over drive button
It's the overdrive engage button, which is like a 5th gear. It only engages when the gear lever is in 4th gear and it can be operated without depressing the clutch.
Press the button on the left side of the transfer case selector lever. It's the lever on the console next to the gear shift lever.
The shift lock button is used when the battery has discharged or the ignition isn't turned on, once the button is pressed it allows the gear lever to be moved from P (parking) to N (neutral).
you have the transmission locked in the " hold " for that gear. To get rid of it push the button on the automatic shift lever below the one you push to put in gear from park.
sounds like your shift lever is not locking all the way. *the button on the drivers side (1/2inx1/8in) is the shift lock override, this could be stuck, take the trim piece off and check it.
The button is located on the left side of the gear shift. (right under the main shift button)
Quite simply it means that the connection between the gear lever & the gearbox is a cable. Other means of connection are. Direct from the gear lever into the gearbox Rod linkage between the gear lever & the gearbox.
On the right side of gear shift lever, there is a long narrow plastic bin probably 1 inch wide and about 3 inch long and 1.5 inch deep.Pull this bin up by grabbing inside.You will find a window below and a pink plastic tab.Gently push this pink plastic tab to release gear shift lever from park in case of emergency (only).
check the pressure spring and arm on the end of the shift drum, or the gear lever is not moving far enough (obstruction somewhere)
on an a manual transmission, just grip the shift lever.
your shift lever bushings are bad, easy fix.
loosen the bolt on the lever, remove the lever and replace in the new angle, then retighten.
There are no warning lights on the gear shift lever.
the button is by the gear selector lever
Red button in front of my gear lever, What is it?All Automatic Models: Pressing this allows you to move the gear lever out of park without turning the ignition
Its a old button for a certain gear. Say you are in overdrive but going up a hill and you need to down shift, hit that button and the car will automatically downshift until you release that button. The same thing applys as when going down a hill, you will want to keep the car at a lower gear so not as to use the brakes as much. It will slow you down automatically.
So that you don't shift the gear selector by accident
If your not starting in low gear check the little snow flake button next to the gear shift. If this has been pressed your starting in 3 rd. gear.
Your emergency brake lever.
