Shift position issues.

Asked by Sep 23, 2014 at 01:53 PM about the 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer ES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer ES with a A/T. When I shift my car into (D) it stays in (N);
but if I shift past (D) and into (3) it will engage. Similarly, if I shift to (R) it will not engage;
but if I shift to (N) and back to (R) it will engage. I have noticed that sometimes when
shifted in (N) the (R) gear is engaged. There are no transmission DTCs, and the ATF is
full and in good condition.

check shift linkage, or the sensor on the transaxle.
