car   Manual Transmission Column Shift problem of Chevrolet Tahoe

Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1GNEK13T0Y_. My 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe was up on a ramp and I was checking the brake pedal on my truck. The column shifter was on p position and the keys were off the ignition. My lower body was outside of the vehicle and as I was checking inside the brake pedal the vehicle started rolling back on its own off the ramp. The driver door pulled down the pole from the back porch as it was backing up and shut back hitting my knee and injured it. I have a bruised left shoulder and back pain. My knee is badly swollen. I was able to limit the damage by pressing the brake pedal otherwise the door would have hit the second pole holding the back porch and it would have collapsed altogether. I incurred damage on my back porch; my vehicle. After that incident I found out that the atc fuse somehow blew when I was underneath: the 4wd indicator was not lit up at all, while it was set in 2hi the whole time. It had somehow switched to neutral on its own when the fuse blew. When I replaced the fuse the light went back to the 2hi position. The column shifter was on p the whole time even after it rolled. This incident is extremely serious and requires a recall because this problem could cause extensive injury or death in case this fuse fails in other circumstances. I would like to be contacted by gm to fix the issue and compensate for all the damages. It was Saturday, November 16, 2013 when this manual transmission column shift issue happened.

car   Manual Transmission Column Shift problem of Chevrolet Malibu

The car was a 2009 Chevrolet Malibu. Bought vehicle new 01/09, 3 mon. Later received letter from gm citing recall for transmission shift cable, took vehicle to dealer and they replaced. Recall id # 78844 - power train:automatic transmission:lever and linkage:column shift no problems with vehicle until 12/12 driving on interstate at approx. 50 mph vehicle began to shift hard/eratic with rpm gage going to 6-7 before vehicle would shift/accelerate, check engine, abs, check tire pressure lights all came on. Called onstar was told there nothing indicated on diagnostics report and to contact gm. Contacted gm was told there was another recall on my vehicle for recall id # 94402 - power train:automatic transmission:gear position indication (prndl). Took vehicle to dealer, dealer said they could not replicate problem I was having and would not have parts until late Jan. To fix recall if that was in fact the issue. Told by delear that eratic shifting is a normal problem with those vehicles. On 4/2/13 car will not go in park completely and ignition will not turn to "off" position, cannot remove key from ignition. Contacted gm was told there were no active recalls on my vehicle because original recall from 2009 fixed the shift cable and replacement part was only covered by gm for 12 months. Gm said second recall was not attached to VIN# and therefore my vehicle was not affected although gm rep and dealer verified it was in Nov 2012. Gm said to take to dealer and get diagnostic report and they would go from there but issue would probably not be covered if it has something to do with shift cable because warranty of 12 mon. On replacement parts has expired. If gm knows there is a continuous problem with this make/model and this component then it should be covered regardless. How many times should you have to take vehicle in for same set of issues. If gm does not own this problem I will never buy a gm vehicle again!. This problem occurred on Thursday, November 1, 2012.

This can allow the shifter to be moved out of the "park" position with the ignition key removed (or in the "lock" position). This can also allow the ignition key to be removed when the shifter has not been placed in the "park" position. Consequences: either of these conditions could allow the vehicle to roll away causing a crash without warning. The failure date was Tuesday, Apr. 2, 2013.

car   Manual Transmission Column Shift problem of Ford Taurus

The car was a 2003 Ford Taurus. The transmission is defective in this car. It has been flushed and is full of fluid. From the beginning I could actually put the column shift between gears. Not what it's supposed to do. The salesman assured me that it was not a problem. The transmission overheats and shifts rough when hot. Last month after driving on the highway for 1/2 hour to get to work, I got off the exit and had to wait at a light. The car refused to shift for several minutes after the light changed. I was almost rear-ended. Two weeks ago the same thing happened. A car came around the corner and just missed me as I was stuck in the middle of the road. There have been numerous complaints about this transmission and it is so bad it even has its own facebook page. I work part-time and have a long commute. I now can only drive backroads at low speeds to make sure my car will shift. And I do not have money for a new transmission. I can't drive to other cities for job interviews. I understand Ford was aware of the problems with this transmission and did nothing to rectify the problem. The car needs a recall. This manual transmission column shift problem happened on May. 1, 2012.

On October 27, 2007 I had backed into my drive way put the vehicle in park had the keys in my hand and walked around the vehicle to get my daughter out of the car seat. This is when I noticed that the vehicle was rolling I then jumped in the passenger side door and tried to stop the vehicle before I could stop the vehicle we (my daughter and I) were over a five-foot rock wall into the bushes my father stood there and watched the whole accident. My legs were hanging out of the vehicle I was very bruised up. Thank god that my daughter had not been unbuckled from her car seat. After my father checked to see if we were okay I handed my father the keys and he moved the vehicle the gear shifter was pushed all the way to the dash in the park position ( I have pictures) the dash lights were reading park but the vehicle would move as though it was in drive. After moving the vehicle the keys would not come out of the ignition. When I wrecked and moved the vehicle there was sand everywhere on the scene from the vehicle it was like beach sand. My question is why did the keys come out of the ignition if the vehicle was not in park and now that the keys are in the ignition you can drive the vehicle in the park position and the keys will not come out?????. The failure date was Oct. 27, 2007.

car   Manual Transmission Column Shift problem of Land Rover Freelander

The vehicle having this issue was a 2002 Land Rover Freelander. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was SALNY22262_. On two separate occasions, one days after my car was cleared for a second time by a Land Rover dealer. My car went into 'limited perfomance mode' while I was commuting to work. . . . I was in the high speed lane and the middle lane and my car would not accelerate about 20 mph. I had to call 911 on the second occasion as it happened because I was in the merge of 2 highways in the evening. My car also had downshifting problems where the downhill decent control would come on out of nowhere causing my car to buck forward and drop down to second gear. The dealership again said that is could not be duplicated 3 times before they finally found something and then it kept happening anyway. My transmission let go on the highway at just over 60k miles and then my engine lining shifted spewing oil only about 2 months after. The dealerships are well aware of the poor quality of these vehicles and yet, they sell and re-sell them to the unsuspecting consumers. I have a lawyer and will be suing lr for everything I can, including lost wages, emotional and physical distress, and anything else that can be tied into my two year nightmare. I strongly suggest you get these vehicles off the road before someone gets killed. Thank you. This problem occurred on Friday, January 27, 2006.

car   Manual Transmission Column Shift problem of Nissan Titan

The vehicle involved is a 2005 Nissan Titan. Column shifter causes damage to wiring harness of the manual mode transmission button. When shifting vehicle into drive, column hits wiring harness, and over time causes wiring to the transmission manual mode button to break. Once this breaks, there is no means to down shift vehicle, causing a hazard especially when traveling roads where there are elevation changes. Was able to determine the cause of the manual mode button failure by researching Nissan Titan forums (club Titan and Titan talk). Upon removing steering column shroud immediately noticed chaffing of the wiring harness, and the broken wire. Contacted Nissan, was given file number 6550464, Nissan was not concerned with this issue due to the age (currently 4 years) of the vehicle.

car   Manual Transmission Column Shift problem of Saturn SL1

My wife's '98 Saturn Sl1 has approximately 80,000 miles on it. About a week ago, she was no longer able to shift out of 1st gear. After taking the center console out, I noticed that a rubber grommet that attached the shift rod to the shift cables had rotted and broken in half. Normally, this should have been very easy to replace. A new grommet could very easily be popped in with around 1/2 hour of work. When I approached the local Saturn dealers, they said they did not have the . 50 cent grommet available, and that the entire shifter cable would have to be replaced (there is nothing wrong with the cables themselves). The person working there said they have to replace the whole cables very often. Total cost for the cables and labor is around $600. They do not sell the grommet seperately. Getting suspicious, I went on the internet to research the problem. This manual transmission column shift problem happened on Fri., Jul. 30, 2004.. Read more...

car   Manual Transmission Column Shift problem of Toyota Tundra

The car is a 2011 Toyota Tundra. I have a 2011 Tundra sr5 with a loud clicking noise that has been coming from the steering column near the shift lever. While in park, the brake pedal must be pressed in order to shift the truck into gear. When I press the brake pedal, a loud click can be heard from the column shifter. This is the column shift lockout solenoid and is normal. However, recently I can hear the solenoid clicking anytime I depress the brake pedal while I'm in gear. Sometimes it is a click, two clicks and sometimes it is series of rapid clicks. I have taken the truck to the dealer twice. The first time I was told the clicking was normal while in park and that they could not duplicate it while in gear. The second time I took it to the dealer, they "blew out the excess grease" from the shift lock. Their best explanation is that the column shift lock solenoid comes from the factory as a sealed unit and is packed with grease. The 'excess' grease can keep the locking arm from fully retracking or engaging and the solenoid will chatter because it is trying to put it into position. This manual transmission column shift problem happened on Mon., Dec. 3, 2012.

car   Manual Transmission Column Shift problem of Jaguar S-type

The vehicle is a 2000 Jaguar S-type. VIN of the vehicle was SAJDA01C2Y_. I parked 2000 S-type Jaguar on hill and due to faulty shifter, the gear shift became jammed in park . I called Jaguar assistance & was told I should have pulled up the handbrake before I placed my car in park. I asked if this was in the owner's manual & was told no. They also said I could have gotten someone to push the car from the back & it would have popped into gear. By this time I am appalled to find that the customer must go through all of this agony to get a luxury car into gear! obviously, they have thoroughly researched methods to correct this problem after it occurs. This lead me to question if a recall had ever been done to correct this defect that is prevalent in 2000 S-types or if a letter has been sent to the customers explaining there are special procedures that one must follow to prevent your jag from being stuck in park on a hill. I was never notified or informed that I must pull up the handbrake before I place the car in park. It is not fair to place the burden of fixing this problem upon the customer. Whether I parked on a hill or on a flat level, my car should go into gear with no problem. Before I could give the make & model of my car they asked if it was a 2000 S-type & I said yes. Jaguar roadside assistance & the customer relations department stated that they get these calls frequently regarding 2000 S-types becoming jammed into gear. I asked if a recall had been done & they said no. I had my car towed to Jaguar & they called to notify that it would cost me, the customer $661. 00 to repair my car. I mailed a letter to Jaguar customer relations stating it was no fault of mine that the car became jammed into park & was informed that since my car is no longer under warranty, Jaguar will not pay for the repairs. A warranty is irrelevant when this is a prevalent problem in this model. I have done research & spoke other Jaguar services here & was told the shifters are faulty in these models and a recall should have been done. It was 07/11/03 when this manual transmission column shift issue occurred.
