Re: Shifter starting to have problems

After adjusting the shifter switch, I'm able to get 'B' driving mode back. Man I really missed that. I still get the check engine light whenever I start the car while in Park. RBS and Turtle mode are now gone. I've found that if I turn the car to start and immediately shift out of Park (before the s...

Re: Shifter starting to have problems

I took the 2 bolts out that hold the sensor on the gear box and saw that they are slotted for rotational adjustment. I'm thinking I can adjust this to make the computer happy. I tried adjusting it for a bit, but it was too cold to keep playing. This weekend will be above freezing so I'll try again l...

Re: Shifter starting to have problems

Man I wish my car was that clean. No wonder I'm having issues with the linkage.

Re: Shifter starting to have problems

Give me about an hour. I'll post a picture to show where to oil the linkage. Thanks! I have the car up and disconnected the cable from the gear box lever. The cable seems to move pretty free. The binding seems to be in the module on the gear box. I'll unbolt that tomorrow and see if I can free it u...

Re: Shifter starting to have problems

The RBS light would be caused by the redundant gear switches in the selector box not matching (think being in-between gears). This would go away with lubricating the shifter linkage at the gearbox. WD40 makes for a decent cleaner, but isn't that great for lubrication. Motor oil penetrates the beari...

Re: Shifter starting to have problems

Thanks PV1! I'll give that a try. The shifter does feel tight and not moving freely. I had the car up on jacks and sprayed the area where the cable links to the gear box with WD40 with no improvement. I'll try the oil. I'm getting the RBS light now too. I've replaced the 12v battery. I can get the c...

Re: Shifter starting to have problems

I'm surprised to see the shifter is a mechanical linkage from the shift lever to the motor area. I would have thought it would be electrical / fly by wire / CAN

I've now lost my 'B` mode and the other drive modes are not always where the shift lever ways they are.

Re: Shifter starting to have problems

Thanks.

I've never looked in that area. I'll have to open it up and see what can be done.

A very rare piece of glass

Apparently there is only one of these in North America and it's on its way to me from Mitsubishi. :?

Shifter starting to have problems

I've seen others have had this problem, but my shifter is starting cause problems. It no longer shifts as smooth as it used to, it won't always display the correct position. I have to shift to B twice to get it to take. Not always going into P when it should, which causes the charger not to start, a...
