My truck is still sitting at work. Not much gets done around the holidays in this area. It still won't start and on the display between the gauges is the message. Truck not in park service transmission. Will keep you updated.

Can you still engage neutral? You should be able to shut down and start the vehicle in neutral, you just have to make damn good and sure that you set the parking brake.

I am not sure you can. On the 8-speed in mine, you cannot take it out of park without actually starting the truck, which sucks when you just want to roll it back a few feet without actually starting it. Just re-read his first post and he is not able to get IN to park, so maybe his will start in nuetral.

This is incorrect. There is an override lever located above the parking brake release lever that allows you to put your truck in neutral. The manual has detailed instructions on getting to it.

Had the same problem briefly today on mine...had just driven through a whole bunch of snow as it is snowing and lots of blowing snow and snow drifts...I backed out the driveway I was in and moved to the side of the street and then it went into park. Guess I'll wait and see and hope that it doesn't happen again!

That's scary. So sorry to hear it. Are they at least going to give you a loaner?

We occasionally have had some new Rovers not go into park, and lose all transmission shift control. And a hard reset will sometimes get you at least moving again.

Try doing a hard reset. Remove negative and positive cables. Touch the cables together (MAKE SURE NEITHER IS TOUCHING THE BATTERY).

Sorry to hear about your truck, Hope it gets fixed soon.

I quess I finally got some good advice from a dealer when they advised me to steer clear of the 8 speed, I think he knew something I did not because he was not even stocking the 8 speed when I got my truck
