Hi, I just joined as I bought a 2009 this fall and I an having a problem with the stick shift freezing. The temp has been a high of 0 and a low of -16 degrees F for the last 3 days and I have not been able to get it out of P. Finally today I let it run for about an hour with the heat going an then it worked fine. My question is - has anyone one else had this problem and is there a way to stop it from happening in the future. I have an '09 with gas engine and 90,000 miles on it.
simplex17 posted a topic in Introduce YourselfMy 2008 smart passion won't go into park. This just happened today. I was coming home and pulled into my driveway and put the car in park and instead of showing P on the dash it showed a blinking N. It drives and shifts fine. I moved through the gears a few times and still comes up a blinking N. After trying a few times I left it in park with the N still blinking and let off the break to see if it would roll back and it didn't. It felt as if it was in park. I also can not remove the key. It will not turn all the way back to the removal position. That really bothers me because I only have one key right now and have to leave it unlocked. The car will not start in the park position. I have to move the shifter to neutral in order to start the car. On another note when in N, R, or D the small lights what show what gear you are in near the bottom of the shifter come on, but the small P does not light up when I put it in park. Any ideas what could be the problem?
