The shift selector cable connects the gear shifter, located on the steering column or on a floor mounted console, to the automatic transmission. The cable is typically steel and is protected from the elements by a plastic outer sheath. At each end of the shift cable, often rubber or nylon bushings allow for cable movement and vibration. In some applications, the cable is adjustable, in case the cable stretches while in use.
No. Usually, it will be difficult to operate the vehicle if the shift cable has broken, stretched, or detached — so the car may not be drivable. In the case of a stretched cable, so long as you can select Park and Drive, it is safe to temporarily use the car until repairs can be made. If Park can NOT be selected it is unsafe to operate the car and the car should be left where it is with the emergency brake applied and the wheels blocked while you schedule a repair.
