I have a 2000 Leganza and it would not shift out of park/gear recently. I discovered it was a bad brake switch with signals the brake lights to activate and the shifter to release. The switch is a small plug-type part and I found a used one on line for about 30 bucks. labor to put it in was about 50. !

I had same problem years ago - there was a recall on the brake light switch - you may be able to get it replaced for free?

In case you get stuck though and need to get it home - stick a screw driver into the slot next to your shifter to get it into gear. Get the switch fixed though - your brake lights may not be coming on.

I have the 2000 model are you talking about rev/neu/ drive/ park gears?

3 very quick and obvious things that will tell you the TPS is operating correctly. 1) If no signal is being received, the transmission will stay in 3rd gear and will not shift. 2) If high voltage exist, the transmission will shift very late if at all but will take of in 1st gear. 3) The check engine light will be on.

check your cross member on the gear selector it sometimes pops off

Most likely on the gear shift under the handle on the righthand side.

it just puts the car in the lowest gear (2nd) In the hold the car will set of in second. mainly used to reduce torque to wheels to reduce wheel spin

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.

What are the two d's on the gear shift for>

Yep, then shift from second to third gear.

depends.firstly you need to have the system read with a scan tool to interpret codes,could be anything from wheel speed sensors to broken teeth on ring gear or abs unit itself.

If it is a manual trans, the shift linkage might be loose, bent, or damaged.

Unscrew it from the shaft

My 1997 would not shift out of first gear, was 'throttle position sensor'.

There is no synchronizer gear in these, so you do the synchronization. You're not going to learn about it by reading about it... perhaps a truck driving school would be in order.

No thanks, I do not want to shift to 3rd gear or drive.

700r4 gear shift lever want lock in place

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.

I live in Forest Park, Ga, and my gear shift got stuck and would not move, had it checked out and it was the gear shift cable, the price at Hessessy Pontiac was $85.00 but i found it at Terrry Cullen Chevrolet for $66.00 and $30.00 to install...

The lift and pull reverse gear is found in cars like the Chevrolet Optra. To shift on to reverse, lift the ring below the gear knob and shift on to 1st gear like you would always do, but with the ring being held.
