Corvette 2007 stuck in D drive

Recommended Posts

Carol

The dash board read service fuel.

 

the little engine lite is on

 

It always gets stuck in P park, but I’ve learned through you tube

to either get out with keys and re enter

or go to Acc mode then start 

usually works

 

22,000 miles this morning I get in have to go through the routine of getting it out of park

 

driving to my appointment- look down and see “no fuel” go to nearest station put in 12 gallons - fuel didn’t move off gauge.

 

i tried to reverse and the vet would not go in gear- drove home-

pull up emergency brake and left it in neutral????

 

any ideas what is wrong?

Start with getting the codes read. That might lead to where the problem lies.

Most electrical gremlins on these cars start with battery problems. Charge it and get it tested

It sounds like the grommet on the shifter cable has finally broken. It's a $5 DIY fix or $$$ at a Chevy dealer. When the console top is removed, also check/adjust the distance to the micro-switch that operates the solenoid to release the shift lever from PARK.

 

I agree about the battery charge/test for the likely unrelated fuel gauge problem.

Any perhaps some Techron in the tank will get your gauge fixed?  What gas do you usually use?

^^^ Buy premium, top-quality gas (recommend Chevron) and put a bottle of Techron in the tank, repeat, repeat may solve the fuel guage issue.

 

I had this same fuel guage issue, it took me 8 tanks of Chevron premium gas/8 bottles of Techron to resolve.
