Vehicles with the automatic mode of transmission can only be started in park or neutral gears to avoid unintentional movement while in park or drive gears. A safety shut down sequence called transmission position sensor, or range sensor is used to find out the position of the gear stick.
Its basic function is to cut power to starter controls if the vehicle is not in park or neutral gear. This switch can found on the side of the transmission and screws into the transmission to detect the gear being applied. This sensor is also commonly known as “transmission range sensor”.
If this sensor fails, driver may be able to start the car in drive or park gears.
The transmission position sensor does not need routine maintenance or servicing but being an electronic part; it can fail due to various reasons.
Our mechanics can come to your home, inspect, and tell you if the sensor needs replacing. The price depends upon the part they are going to use while replacing it, the vehicle in question, and the mode of repair chosen.
