Customer Question
Hello I have a...

Hello I have a 2015 Maserati Quatroporte and every time I put the car in gear reverse or drive the car does not move and it indicates that it is back in park. Can you please advise.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?

The transmission can be no older than the 3yrs. And are you talking about the emergency parking brake switch?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Quattroporte yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I am not fixing it myself I am simply trying to get to work on this very cold morning

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thats it

Hello my name is***** will do all I can to help. First thing I want you to do is run the gear stick from Park to low gear about 9 or 10 times fairly quickly, there's a gear position switch and sometimes the contacts will wear or get slightly corroded and moving the gear stick back and forth through those contacts will sometimes clean them. Try that and let me know what happens thank you

Ok I don't want to sound ignorant but how do I do that?
AU Auto Mechanic: Edward, Service Technician replied 7 months ago
Can you physically move the gear stick from the park position all the way down to the low gear position if you can do that about 9 or 10 times move it through its range and then tried it's probably going to need a new gear position switch
