Q: Stick shift not working

asked by on

Radio and stick shift not working.

With the radio not working, the most likely cause of this is a wiring issue to the radio or a blown fuse. Since this car did not come with a manual transmission I am unsure exactly what is meant by the stick shift, if the shifter that is referenced is the one to change gears in the automatic transmission the most common cause of not being able to get the car out of gear is the brake switch. A certified technician would be able to diagnose your issue with your radio and shifter.
