Can you please say more?

Did you just put a new transmission in ("after putting transmission in" - not sure if you mean new/repacement/rebuilt tranny or you meant to say put transmission park)?

What exactly happens (lever moves into park? Nothing engages? How do you get the key out?)

does the car run?

Is she shifting ok?
I think the more info you can give us the faster/better answer you'll get. Let us know.

Sorry about the lack of info. Yes it is a rebuilt transmission zf5hp24. It starts in park, shifts fine, park lights up but wonít lock to keep car from rolling. Itís just that transmission parking gear does not engage in park, so I have to use the emergency brake so car doesnít roll. I have tried adjusting the shifting cable with no luck.

Sorry forgot to add...The key comes out fine while in park. You just have to make sure and use emergency brake.

Default Selector on ZF body

Have you checked the J Gate Gear lever module internals?

You said you tried adjusting the cable cable but was that at the side of the J gate?

You said the you had the ZF transmission body rebuilt. Have you checked the cable connector going to the ZF bodyís selector. I think thereís an adjustment nut
