Shifter Transmission Cable Failure - Ram 2018 3500
Recently our Big Blue 2018 Ram 3500 pickup truck suffered its first breakdown and required a tow. Luckily it's still under full warranty, and I was not far from where I bought it.
I went to leave a parking space and reversed out, but when I went to put the shifter into drive, it wouldn't go and felt suddenly sloppy. I tried to shift back into park, but no go either. The truck would only go into reverse or neutral.
Turns out an adjustment clip had come loose on the shifter cable. The Ram mechanic fixed the problem by reseating and adjusting the cable. However, he decided since the vehicle was under warranty and I tow a fifth-wheel trailer to replace the cable to be %100 sure of the repair.
In this video, I show you how the cable is hooked from the column shifter arm through the firewall and down to the transmission connection.

At least you were not towing, which is another level of hassle when the truck decides to hiccup !
