Shift Indicator

I have a 94 s10 ext. 2wd with and automatic transmission and the shift indicator on the column does not line up with the proper gear. You can still drive the truck by counting the number clicks the shifter goes down. I was just wondering if there is a fix to this issue or, if it could cause problems later on.

Any Advice is appreciated.

Re: Shift Indicator

You can still drive it, alot of them did it, its just a little wire that looks like a twisty tie that connects the indicator with the shifter...mine did that too, I fixed it by puttin a blazer floor shift in lol....but it wont affect anything as long as you know what gear youre in

Re: Shift Indicator

Just remove the trim piece around the cluster and you can adjust the pull wire.

Re: Shift Indicator

Mine has all the sudden gotten REALLY bad. As in the shifter it's self moves in and out of the spot.. it hasn't switched a gear by its self, but it is not tight and doesn't "light up.. indicate" what gear it is in all the time. I can get it to by minipulation of the shifter, like going over the gear to get it to light up, and coming back to that gear. Also "1" will not light no matter what. I CAN switch to different gears, that isn't an issue, but having the indicator show what gear it is in, and to have the shifter "stick" where it is supposed to be.. doesn't always happen.

Anyone have any info for me on this? This is my initial search for this problem. Didn't know what to call it though..

Re: Shift Indicator

well, from your description in this thread, i'd say a bad shift cable or one of the brackets / attachments that holds the cable in place is broken.
