Automatic vehicles rely on automatic transmission cable to select the correct gear in the car while driving. Whether it is selecting the park mode, drive mode, reverse mode or neutral mode, without the cable it would be impossible to select the gear from the inside of the car. The automatic transmission cable joins the gear selector in the vehicle to the gearbox of the car and allows the driver to select from the driving position. These cables are constructed of sturdy materials and are made to last but over time, with wear and tear taking place, they can degrade and might need replacement.
If you are finding it difficult to select a gear in an automatic vehicle, it might be an indication that the transmission cable is frayed or broken. If you are not able to select a gear at all, this could mean that the cable has snapped and needs to be replaced. It is important to have this cable checked at regular service intervals to ensure that it is intact and operating properly. If your mechanic suggests that the automatic transmission cable is looking old and worn it is suggested that a new cable be purchased.
Finding a replacement automatic transmission cable is as easy as going online and finding the correct part. By punching in the make, model and engine capacity of your car you will be able to locate and purchase the part online and have it delivered either directly to your service centre or to the desired address of your choice. Ensuring that your car is in a roadworthy and safe condition at all times means that parts such as the automatic transmission cable needs to be checked on a regular basis.
