My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This is usually due to a faulty shifter cable or an issue with the cable adjustment as most have adjustments when the cable is installed.if this was not checked to see if it can be adjusted this needs done.If you need info on how to adjust this let me know.Also check the shifter itself to see if it is damaged in any way needing repaired or replaced to correct this fault here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
