Q: Q: Vehicle not shifting out of park

asked by on

My vehicle will not shift out of park. The shifter is disconnected from the cable.

Hello, if the shifter is disconnected, there is a chance that what ever holds the cable to the linkage is broken or worn out. The cable where it has become disconnected should be inspected to see what has failed. I would recommend having your vehicle’s transmission inspected to determine what is causing this issue.
