What would cause a gear shifter to be stuck in park and the car won't start?
Your steering column is locked. how do you fix it
There is a part called the Shifter Sheet by Suzuki. This rubber part sits below the shifter ball in the top of the t-case. When it dries up and crumbles away the t-case shifter can get stuck. A new part is only a few dollars and is easy to replace. If you have this issue, you also probably have a sloppy shifting 5 speed transmission. A new "shifter bolt" will fix this issue.
first most obvious, make sure the transfer case is not in neutral. If the shifter is stuck in one position you can access the floor panel over the shifter, then remove the shifter, sometimes when worn or loose they can become stuck and you can fix it by lifting the shifter out of the trans. Lastly, and you would probably already suspect this, the clutch is gone, but you would have had a lot of…
I had the problem with my 2000 regal 2x. They replaced the ignition, which did not work. I went up north and a friend worked at the gm dealer. He said it was the solenoid in the shifter. He replaced the shifter and guess what, it worked!! Answer Actually, I had this happen to my 94 sable and I was trying to get the key out for a while. Make sure the car is in…
Check the neutral safety switch on the shifter. If you place the shifter into neutral or push the shifter harder into the park position, this may change the switch position to allow it to start. There is a recall on the grand Cherokees for this switch. Answer Check the battery, i had the same problem once and it turned out to be one of the cells in my battery had gone bad
When I try to put my 1994 Mercury in gear the shifter won't move Like it is stuck or something What would cause that It was fine when I exited the car?
Two items that might prevent the shifter from moving: # Ignition key lock. If this mechanical part isn't releasing the mechanism to the transmission lever, the shifter will not move. # Brake pedal switch. On some cars, one must depress the brake pedal in order to release the shifter out of Park. Could be a defective switch for that, too.
This happened once to my van. There is a pin inside the transmission that locks the wheels when the shifter is in "Park". That pin had broken off and was bouncing around inside the transmission and eventually jammed it so that the shifter was stuck in "Drive". I had the get my transmission rebuilt. I hope yours is a simpler problem. Perhaps there is a simple problem with the linkage between the steering column and…
2000 sportage ex 4x4 with a manual trans you believe it is stuck in 1st gear you can put it in other gears and it pulls the engine down but wont move any clues as to what would cause this?
could be jammed you can remove the plastic around the shifter by taking off the panel covers by your heater blower with the small clips then you can pop off the cover around the shifter sometimes things can get stuck try shifting it without the covers on if that doesn't do it you may need to replace the whole thing... www.jimsgotparts.com can help you out!
The brake light switch on top of the brake pedal. to temp. fix this if you are stuck some place.on the right side of shifter at the base of the console is a slot. find something solid that will fit down in side and there is a button to push down. as you push the button, depress shifter button and the shifter will release out of park.
Key is designed to not come out unless the transmission is in the park position. If the shifter is in park but the transmission is not, then the linkage (which hooks the shifter to the transmission) has somehow come out of adjusment. It will need to be adjusted - I would suggest having this done by a professional.

Your shifter assembly is just shot. Happens to most older ford/mercury shifters. There is a shifter rebuild kit available online...usually Ebay, that sells for about $85 that will fix it. It comes with a new link, some plastic and rubber bushings etc. and can be easily installed from under the car. Look for a shifter rebuild kit. To prevent this from hapening again DO NOT DRIVE with your hand ON THE SHIFTER! Use it only…
