Q: Shift cable broken

asked by on

I believe my shift cable is broken. I cannot shift or crank my vehicle.

Unfortunately, the most common problem to that symptom is the automatic transmission needs replacing according to our database. I would recommend taking the car to a transmission specialist and have them look at the vehicle.
