Issue / Question:
My car was doing strange things like the radio, A/C, turn-signals, and windows not working. The car wouldn’t start so a friend switched fuses and it worked for a short time. Then the key would not turn. I took the car to a local garage and had the battery replaced because it was dead. Now it starts and everything is working, but it will not go into gear. Any suggestions?

Answer:
If the shifter won’t move with the brake depressed, we have a problem with the shift lock safety system. If you can move the shifter into position and the car doesn’t move, there may be a problem with the range sensor or possible program issue resulting from the battery problem. I would suggest having it towed in and letting us check it. If you need assistance with the towing let us know and we can make the arrangements.
