Why does the car only go in Drive mode when shifted in every gear?
Wife has a 98 lexus es300. Every gear is
stuck in Drive mode. The dash gear
indicator light is on neutral when its in park.
When you shift out of park, Reverse is in
Drive, Neutral is in Drive and so fourth.
Theres no hesitation when shifted in
Transmission gear selector switch is most likely bad, and this will have a bad effect on the ECM controls so you might not get the performance you would normally have. You could try cleaning then readjusting it but most likely you will wind up replacing it.
