Q: Stickshift button broken

asked by on

The stickshift button broke. Now I can't put the car in any gear to drive.

Hello. I think you are talking about the button on the end of the automatic transmission gear selector. Oddly enough, this is a common problem with vehicles like yours. The only fix is to replace the button. A trained professional, such as one from YourMechanic, can inspect the gear selector’s button and repair what is necessary.
