Having problems with your 1997 Cadillac Seville ?
1997 Cadillac Seville transmission does not engage any gears
\015 1997 Cadillac Seville V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic This is my uncles car he was having trouble getting the gear selector out of park position recently so he forced it out. Since that time the car will not engage any gears forward or reverse. The scrolling message on the dash reads, "Theft System Problem" followed by "Car May Not Restart" The car does start however when the gear shift is moved from park down through nuetral and into drive positions the transmission does not engage. The trans does not engage in any of the positions -the engine idle fluctuates as you go from one position to the next. The trans will go into nuetral and was opperating normally prior to this -with no grinding, clunking or whirling sounds. Nor is it leaking or requiring added fluids frequently. What is wrong and how can I repair the problem.\015
