Shifting to "D"rive doesn't seem to engage transmission

Asked by Feb 28, 2017 at 01:45 PM about the 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander ES 4WD

Question type: General

Dears,
Recently my transmission reflects a problem when shitfing to D from park position. The car simply doesn't move as if the gear was in "N"eutral position. It works only after shifting to R and back to D a few times. Today I tried to push accelerator further and after a delay it engaged suddenly. In the meantime there are no warning signs or indicators on display pointing to an issue. Please help - what is the potential cause and what can be done to resolve it?

Could be a low fluid level. But since your vehicle is newer, it also might be some electronics. I'd get it looked at by your local garage.

May be the neutral safety switch.
