Asked by Nov 08, 2016 at 01:02 PM about the 2002 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

the gear selector indicates the wrong gear when driving.  eventually it will come back to indicate I am in Drive after a few minutes of driving.

1 Answer


Could be early stage gear selector switch failure, a "live data" scanner will be able to tell if that is the problem, that switch tells the computer what gear you are in, if it stays out of sync very long you will get a check engine light and possibly it might not go into gear.
