I have a manual 96 cavalier. It was working fine until I got to the stop light. I tried going on first gear but I am unable to. I turned the car off, tested it by shifting gears, and it worked just fine. Turned the car on and it is locked from 1st gear, all gears.. Can anybody tell me what I must do! PLEASE
