Dodge Avenger Shifter stuck in park Part 2 of 2
My wife's 2008 Dodge Avenger would not go in drive or reverse. I see that this is a common problem (Duh, its a Dodge), due to a cheap plastic shifter assembly.
The part cost $50.00 at my local dealer, and had the exact same defect - CHEAP! So I opted for a quick, free fix. I will post on how long this fix might last.
Thank you and I hope this helps you.
2006 Impala shifter problems
2006 Impala shifter electrical wire plug in. Broken wires are common on these models, wher the wire connector plug, moves with the shifter. Because of the wires being small guage and very short travel distance they break easily. Symptms of a broken connection, key will not turn off switch or will be stuck in switch, shifter may not release from park and stay in locked position. Some simular models are the same around this year.
How to start a smart fortwo that's stuck in park (ABS light on)
IMPORTANT: When you're jiggling your screwdriver or other metal implement, you (obviously?) have to also be pulling on your shifter. I forgot to mention this on the video. If you have a question leave a comment.
I pulled myself out of park at least a dozen times before I was able to get to a dealer.
Kudos to the folks on the Smart Car of America forums who had this figured out: http://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/f25/shifter-stuck-park-heres-get-me-home-fix-5578/
Another update: this problem went away by itself when the weather warmed up to -10*C. Protip: Smartcars aren't great in -30*C!
DIY on how to check Shift Control Solenoid for 90-93 Honda Accords
TCU Error codes are indicated by the "S" light on 90-91 models, and the "D4" light on 92-93 models. The codes can be read in the same way, with paperclip method, as the ECU codes, by counting the flashes of these lights.
1. If your check engine light is on, start by going to your passenger side kickpanel.
There should be a blue connector w/2 wires to it. Put a paper clip or piece of wire in to the connector to connect the two prongs.
2. Put the key in the ignition, and turn the key 2 clicks to the acc on, where all the lights light up on the dash.
3. You will now watch how many times the S/D4 light blinks.
a long blink = 10
a short blink = 1
It will repeat after all the codes are done.
4. Compare to this list to see what the problem is:
0-Transmission control unit (TCU) faulty.
1-Lock-up solenoid 'A' circuit open or shorted.
2-Lock-up solenoid 'B' circuit open or shorted.
3-Throttle Position Sensor circuit open or shorted.
4-Vehicle Speed Sensor open or shorted - No signal from speedometer.
5-Shift Lever Position Switch circuit shorted.
6-Shift Lever Position Switch circuit open.
7-Shift Solenoid 'A' circuit open or shorted.
8-Shift Solenoid 'B' circuit open or shorted.
9-Counter shaft or transmission speed pulse generator open or shorted.
10-Coolant Temperature Sensor open or shorted.
11-Engine RPM (Ignition coil signal) open or shorted.
12-(No code 12 used)
13-Main shaft speed pulse generator open or shorted.
14-Linear (line pressure control) solenoid open or shorted.
15-Kick down switch circuit shorted.
