I have a 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII. The button that you have to push in on the gear shift lever is frozen and we can't get it out of park. Need ideas on what causes this. Hate to take it into a dealer and pay big bucks if it is something simple that we can fix ourselves. Also the one time that we were able to engage the gear shift into reverse it did not release the auto emergency brake release. Another problem we have is the automatic seat adjustment motor runs but the seat no longer mover forward

I have a 1993 325 BMW and cant get the trunk open. The button on the trunk lid just moves in/out freely. There isnt a lever on the inside to release the trunk. Of course the battery is dead now.

2007/2008 Winnabago - View Sprinter Mercedes Chassis and Drivetrain. Stuck on trip with the shift lever stuck in low gear and transmission not shifting. It sticks in park unless you release it by pressing a button below the shifter, then it is stuck only in low gear. It runs as if it is in some form of "lock out" and only runs in a "cripple mode".  Just stopped for a fill-up and couldn't get it out of park, then found the button but can't get it to shift.

I cannot shift my 98 Sable out of park into a gear after it starts, if I turn the engine off then turn the key to on (not engaging the starter) the gear shift can be moved to neutral then the engine starts and I can shift to any gear. If I choose park I need to turn the car off and go through this process to get the car in neutral again. It sounds like an eletrical connection but where?

I purchased a 2001 Kia sportage ex, automatic transmission, about 2 1/2 months ago, and after I started driving it home, realized that it wont shift gears. AT ALL. The only way my dad got it to shift from first to second was by pressing the overdrive button on the side of the gearshift.. Then he could get it to shift into overdrive by holding down said button once he got the car up to about 50-55 mph.. Now nothing gets it to shift.. Has anyone encountered this problem, or just have suggestions?

I have 1995 c200 170,000km. I recently changed the automatic gearbox oil and filter. I still cant get the car to shift properly. At times it works but most of the time you must really attain very high revs for the car to shift to the next gear. However when you shift to neutral then back to D it quickly pick the right gear. I also notice the idling speed most times is above 1000rpm and when I turn the ignition off and floor the gas pedal when I start again it settles back to about 600rpm. Help

I have a 1999 Camry LE 2.2l Automatic. I attempted to drive the car yesterday, and found that the shift will not engage any gear. The shift is not stuck in park, it simply moves from park through RND21 with no resistance. I assume this means I need to replace or repair a shift cable. Is this a reasonable assumption? Can you ballpark the cost of a garage doing this work? Do you think I, a moderately able do-it-yourselfer could do it on my own? Can I get the car out of gear manually to atleast mov
