Customer Question

My truck is in park. When I went to move it, the gear shift moves freely, but the indicator light remains in park and the truck remains in park. The gear shift is not moving the transmission gears. Please advise. Thank you, Bob
JA: Have you checked the level of your transmission fluid? Is it bright red, or is it dirty?
Customer: I had it changed three years ago.
JA: What is the model/year of your GM?
Customer: 1995
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I followed the gear shift cable to the linkage and I see nothing changes. The truck is in the garage and unmovable.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No One more thing. Could it be the cable lock clip that GMC had problems with?
