i did my bodylift/wheels/tires, acouple weeks ago, ill take some pics but have been working too much, anyways now for the most part i have to start my truck in neutral, anyone els have this problem?
also i wasnt sure where to post this.
I'm assuming you have auto. I may be corrected on this but check to make sure the cable for your auto transmission isnt pulled tight anywhere and its "free" all along the cable. Good luck! hope that makes sense
yeah sorry, i was just thinking of how i didnt post what kinda transmission i have, yes it is a auto.the gear selector cable(not sure what it is called) is pulled cause when im in drive it shows that im in neutral.
There's a neutral safety switch on the side of the tranny that the cable snaps onto. Get a light and watch it move as someone cycles through PRNDL...you should probably see the problem...make sure it's plugged in too lol.
I did my bodylift like a month ago and couldn't get the gear selector cable unclipped from the firewall. I gave up in fear of breaking it and just kept a close eye on it while I lifted. The gear shifter was just slightly off but no problems until last night when my truck wouldn't start until it was in neutral. I guess I'm going to have to try again to pull it off the firewall. The plug thing that holds it onto the firewall looks different than the one in the bodylift instructions. Does anybody know how to get it off? Do I just pry really hard, or should I try and access it from the back, under the dash? '07 4.0L FX4 with a 5r55e.
yeah i solved the problem, but crappy thing is today, i dont really know how to explain it, but the clip by the tranny for the shift cable broke so now i cant put my truck in park unless i go under the truck, so ill need to get that fixed asap.
