I just noticed this today after starting up my truck that the gear shifter just slides through the gears, not stopping and engaging like it should. I have a 2004 4x4 Lariat Supercrew.
Yesterday when driving I was doing 75 and moved it into 2nd gear, the rpm's immediately shot up ( I didn't notice how high) so I immediately moved it back to Drive. I drove my truck for a while after that, putting it in park, drive and reverse several times with no problems, but today it won't engage in any gear.
Heres a video. Maybe you guys know what the problem is.
u need a sheifter actuator, its a dealer item only, cost 295 canadian i got it new on ebay for 120< take plactic try from around shifter off , and there u will see a white button u can press to disigage untill u get the part
My money is on the dis-connection answer from 'Need4racin'...this problem has nothing to do with the actuator or the brake lamp switch. If the linkage is not disconnected, then there is a Trans. problem.
