Sounds like a possible vaccuum leak to me, take the car to a trusted shoop and have your vaccuum system inspected, hopefully they should be able to diagnose the problem quickly. but before that, warm the car to operating temp, drive around the block and check your tanny fluid level, that could be the cheapest and easiest fix of all.
Safety neutral switch
Park, reverse, neutral, Drive and low
Shift linkage out of adjustment?
Shift linkage may need to be adjusted?
I am not sure but there should be a switch by the brake pad to release the safety neutral switch to allow you to shift. Try that.
Short circuit somewhere in the reverse-light or even the reverse switch itself. Other causes are also possible.
Your car has an automatic transmission which includes a "neutral safety switch" to prevent the car being started while the shifter is in any position except "neutral" or "park". This switch is activated by the shift lever and prevents voltage to the starter solenoid when the car is in gear (drive or reverse). This is a safety features that prevents the car from lurching ahead or backward while starting.
I am having the same problem on my 94. It will go into drive but that is it.
Turn ignition on. Indicator lights will light. Put it in neutral. If red reverse light is off, go to next line, If red reverse light is on, shift up one till Green neutral light comes on. Put it in neutral. Shift down till Green light comes on. Press the starter (square button on left grip.
If automatic.... pull the emergency beak and put the shift on N for neutral... If 5 or 6 speed... there should be a picture showing you 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, reverse and neutral..............
check the transaxle range switch and positioning....the holes should line up in neutral
When we have this problem, we turn the ignition off and shift into neutral, restart the engine and it can then be shifted into drive or reverse.
It a protection that way u won't damage the transmission
Yes, There is a knob in between the handle bars that you turn when it is in neutral and shift down.
While it is in neutral hold in the left hand brake and shift down
Usually on steering column lower if column shift, next to floor shift (remove panels) if floor shift or at transmission integrated with reverse light switch
Start in Neutral, push and hold the red button in on left handle bar, squeeze left hand brake and shift down
Push down the red R button, hold in the left brake and shift down beyond neutral gear. At least hat's how its done on a 2004 anyway.
The shift cable is loose or mis adjusted.
shift to nutral,then move lever to reverse
You must stop,shift into neutral, then shift into 4x4 high/low and back into drive. To disengage, stop again, shift to neutral, then shift back in 2x4 and drive, for safety you should reverse about 10-15 feet to help disengage the shaft.
In the car there's a small hole by the shift gears, take cover off, we used a metal nail file To press down, this now lets you shift gears.
If the trans is locked in one gear, and the stick refuses to move, it has very likely jumped out of the shift selector rods. You will likely have to remove the shift stick cross pin, to pull the stick out, and manually with a long flat screw driver, shift all rods to the neutral position. There are cut aways in the rods. The neutral position should be when they are all in the same general location so the stick can move between them. Test this by bumping the starter, before replacing the stick.
2003 Honda 450 es Forman will not shift into reverse?
Your shift linkage may have slipped or become loose. Check your linkage.
