Last night my car went into reverse when I put it in drive and in park. I turned it off and attempted to start it again to no avail. I have not had any problems with the transmission prior to this and the gear shift moves easily between park, drive etc. There have been no strange noises or grinding noises.
Do you
have the same problem?

Under your hood on your transmission you have a shifter cable. On the end of the cable there is a small plastic clip that brakes and the cable falls off. If u have some1 sit in the car and move the shifter from park to 1st u will see the cable moveing. U will also see that where it attatches to is not hooked up. Most cars there is not a repair kit for this problem but some there is. If you goto the dealer they will most likley sell u a whole cable. If u goto a tech out in the shop they most likley have a new end or simple repair to fix this problem. In the slight chance the cable is on under the hood u will need to take your consol apart and reattach it in there. For a simple fix to last a few days use a few rubberbands but it is only a temp fix as they will break fast from the heat under the hood.
Was this
