You have a problem with a 92 Lebaron Convert V6 and at first you had to start it in Neutral now it won't start or stay in any gear is this the shift linkage?
The most likely cause is a misajusted or faulty neutral safety switch, or your linkage is coming loose and preventing proper indexing. Your description is how most mechanics troubleshoot a "will not crank situation". If it will not crank in Park, move the trans lever to Neutral to see if it will crank. If it does it's the switch. Your car just did the test for you and now the switch has either moved just enough to prevent starting or by your description of not staying in any gear the shifter assembly needs to be repaired. Since you have two problems combined, one starting and one being a gear selection problem, I would lean towards the shifter assembly in the console is probably loosening up. If you are mechanically inclined you can figure out the screws that need to be removed to access the shifter assembly and remove the console to inspect it. Because it has loosened up, it has affected the neutral safety switch preventing your car from cranking. I did vehicle maintenance for 27 years and I will pretty much bet that this is your problem. The neutral safety switch is screwed into the trans. Front side, just above the pan. There are two swtches that look the same, however the Nuetral safety is the one closest to the tire or outside of the car. Trans model A604 Dan the tranny man
The problem is most likely in the transfer case or the linkage. The transfer case is bolted to the rear of the transmission on that truck. The linkage could be misadjusted, there should be three distinct positions for the transfer case, Neutral, Low and High. If you suspect the linkage disconnect the linkage and manually put the transfer case in each position and try it to see if it works, if it does it's the…
It depends on the type of transmission. If it is a manual transmission, the first thing to check would be the linkage. If the linkage is not the problem, then it could be the bushings or the synchronizer. If it is an automatic transmission, then it could be a problem with the bands, though you could have debris in the valve body or a servo problem. In some cases, linkage bearings could be an issue.

Why would a 1997 ram van 2500 primetime not start in drive but will start in neutral this is an intermittent problem thanks to anyone who can offer any help?
it's not supose to startin drive, what kind of question is that * It is possible that you meant Park, and not Drive. If this is the case, your shift linkage may be in need of adjustment as the vehicle may not be registering that it is out of reverse,and therefore not allow it to start. Try lifting the shift lever while you try to start the vehicle. if this works, you may just need…
Where is the neutral safety switch for a 1990 ford probe I CANT SEEM TO FIND IT ALSO IS THIS THE PROBLEM SOMETIMES IT STARTS AND SOMETIMES IT DON'T IN ANY GEAR?
Don't know which vehicle you have, but it sounds like there is a linkage between you ignition key and shifter. This basically allows your ignition key to lock your shifter, it prevents someone from shifting your car into neutral and pushing it away, or keeps a child playing from rolling your car down the hill into the house. The problem is as things wear it car work backwards, your shifter is placing pressure on your…
Your most likely problem is your ignition module...Its a computer on the left side behind the battery....Just follow the hose from your air cleaner it will lead you right to it. This happened with my lebaron as well, but it turned out to be the oxygen sensor was shorting out. If this doesn't solve the problem...try replacing the ASD relay. (auto shutdown). We had that problem with ours
Why would your 1994 Ford Taurus not start in Park or Neutral until after you have shifted through all the gears?
I'm having a similar problem with my car. There is a linkage from the shifter stick in the car to the transmission. Here in this area we have had severe fluctations in weather from nice and warm (65 deg F) to about freezing bloody cold (-10 deg F) and my linkage has shrunk and expanded. With my car, a 1989 Plymouth Horizon with a 3 speed automatic transmission I need to put the car into…
You need to determine if it's a stuck tranny or a linkage problem. Set the brake. Get under the car and remove the linkage end from the tranny. If the tranny can be shifted by hand from here then the problem is in the column. If it's still jammed take it to a shop for repair as it is beyond the scope of this page to explain how to tear down an automatic transmission. You…
How do you fix a 1994 Ford Escort manual trans that when shifted into any gear appears to be in neutral?
I was having the same problem. I also bought a short shifter to put on it and I figured I would find out the problem when I put that on. So while installing that I removed the bolt in the linkage to free up the shifter and there are two plastic bushings gearshift linkage that is worn out 1 was actually missing and the other was just hangin by a thresd so yours might be…
It could be a linkage problem. The older linkage setup is prone to failure. Unfortunately to remedy the problem a trained VAG tech should reset and repair this issue. It could be out of synch. Check your slave cylinder in front of the master cylinder and make sure the fluid levels are correct. To feed the level of the slave you must make sure the master is full and fill thru the master cyl. If…
Why does your truck jump out of gear when the 4wd shifter is in the neutral position and when its in the 2 wd hi position?
What would cause a 1991 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale engine to sometimes race when not pressing the accelerator?
What would cause the gear shift in your 96 accent to have a lot of play in it 1st gear is now very far to the left and reverse is far right 3rd and 4th are fine no broken parts visual in linkage drive?
You have a 1983 Chrysler Lebaron gts replaced the starter now it won't turn over or anything the headlights and breaklight will come on and that is it?
Slide in under the drivers side door and look up at the drivers side of the transmission and you will see a black plastic switch right behind the shifter linkage on the side of the trans. It will have an electrical connector pluged into it. That will be what you are looking for. REPLACE THAT SWITCH if that is your problem. You didn't say what kind of trouble your having.
If the car is in neutral, you accelerate (press the gas pedal) and the vibrations reduce and even disappear then it's a problem with the clutch. If the car is in neutral and it vibrates regardless of your acceleration, then it's a problem in the gear box. If you're lucky, it's only a faulty bearing that needs to be replaced.
