hi there, I am Cam. Almost always the cable pops off at the transmission lever on the drivers side of the transmission. There is no retainer, only a rubber insert in the end of the cable that holds it on the pin of that lever. Climb under when it is safe to do so and check the cable. Pop it back on and see if it goes on firmly.

I have no idea where it would be. Is it on the side or on top of the transmission housing?
Expert:  Gm Tech Cam replied 2 months ago.

This is under the vehicle on the side of the transmission.
