1999 Silverado Z71 shifter linkage issue, need help

Recommended Posts

Hi all, haven't posted in quite a while. I am in serious need of some help. I have a 1999 silverado 4x4 z71. Just replaced the shifter cable about a month ago. Everything was fine until last night. Took it out to drive, and when I got home put it in Reverse but would not go up to Park. I was able to shut it off and get underneath and move the linkage manually to Park. But now I can start it up and when I go to put it in gear the shifter moves very freely and but it will not change from Park to anything else. The light on the dash shows Park lit and when you shift it goes off but never lights anything else on the tree. I am stumped, is it the new cable I just put on? Any thoughts guys would be appreciated. I have the trim panel off on the column and can see the shifter moving but it is like there is now tension on it at all.
