Can I disable the auto downshift on mountain drives and not hurt my tansmission? It'd dis shift is so rough is scares me!


You can not disable the automatic downshift if it is a harsh shift you have a defective transmission or other shift control issue. I would go with the transmission being defective. Has the fluid and filter ever been changed? should be done at about 60,000 miles for optimum transmission life and function.

Pulled into a parking place. Tried to put in park, but shift just moved up and down...didn't engage. Somehow, it moved to second, but then wouldn't go anywhere else. Turned car off, and it won't start...


Your shift cable has came unhooked from either your transmission or your shifter. Most likely it’s at the trans. There are little plastic retainers at the ends of the shift cables that get old and brittle and will break. You may be able to match one up from a auto parts store but sometimes you have to replace the whole cable.. The vehicle will not start because it’s still in gear, no vehicle will start unless it’s in either park or neutral..

I have a 1995 Buick Regal that automatically locks the doors when you shift from park into drive, I dont like that feature. Is there any way to disable that feature?


If you start it in neutral, the auto locks don't auto lock. As an mechanic, I start in neutral out of habit because it technically reduces wear by avoiding going through reverse.shift out of park while in acc to nuetral and start

Wont shift out of park


probably the brake pedal switch (mounted on the brake pedal lever) starting to fail. it releases the shift lever and controls the brake lights coming on. you will need to replace this.

for now, turn the key in the ignition to the lock position (counter clockwise,) then to the off position (clock wise). In this position the brake shift interlock is disabled and you can move the shifter to neutral. these instructions are also in the owners manual in the driving section. the switch should be changed because eventually you won't have brake lights.

2000 Jimmy - starts but can't shift into gear - can't push button in


Check ALL the fuses !!! Does the brake lights work? if not,, the shift inter lock may be disabled ,,, if the lights work the interlock solenoid might be the culprit . You should be able to get in gear by turning the ignition switch off then turning to the first selection ,,don't turn it untill the dash lights come on ,,with the key in that position you should be able to shift the lever to put it in gear ,,,,dont move the key untill its in the correct gear

My gear shift is stuck on my 94 jeep cherokee, car starts fine but can take it out of park. what to do?


Check the brake switch on the pedal, if that does not work try to take apart the shifting lever there should be a motor that locks the steering lever try to disable it. have a good day !!
