Chevrolet: I am working on a 2002 Isuzu Axiom 3.5....when i

Helloooo George H   Are you still with me?? Please either give answer or pass to someone else..........  I am working on a 2002 Isuzu Axiom 3.5....when i put shifter in drive i notice that the little green circle around the D starts to jump around from park to low drive neutral all over. I can drive it froward but if i stop and go to lets say reverse it just feel like it is not engaged in any gear like it is in neutral. I have to shut off motor and wait a few minuets before i can put it in reverse or what ever gear i need to use. Is it some kind of sensor problem? Help please. Thanks.

Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for visiting Just Answer.


Have you done any diag or replaced any parts so far?

When it will not engage and feels like neutral, is this for every gear?

No diag....yes for every gear. Thanks

Ernest, based on the failure you are having, I believe the transmission externally mounted mode select switch (transmission range sensor/neutral switch) at the end of the shift linkage is to blame in your case.
