J-Gate shift cable is stretched...
J-Gate shift cable is stretched out... so it won't go directly from Park to Drive. When I try, it lands in neutral. I have to put into 3rd gear, then start driving, and once it engages, then I can shift back to drive and it's ok. This is a nuisance though.... what's easiest/cheapest way to resolve?

Hello and Happy New Year. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to assist you today.

.

There was a service bulletin to replace the cable with an updated one, on some of them.


.

Issue:

Some owners of 2000-02 MY S-TYPE vehicles may experience difficult range selection, or an inability to start the vehicle.

These conditions can be caused by the following:

.

^ The inner transmission selector lever cable movement is restricted/stiff.
^ The outer transmission selector lever cable appears to be moving within the crimped ends.

An improved selector lever cable entered production on later vehicles to solve this

.

condition.

Action:

In case of a customer complaint of the above conditions on a 2000-2002 MY S-TYPE vehicle, install the new improved selector lever cable, available under the existing part number (XRB 33366).

.

….

I have the instructions in a PDF format HERE ..

Thanks
