Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty
2005 Liberty my shift linkage stop moving I read a lot about the cable bushings but they are connected and if I remove the cable from the shifter I can turn the key and hit the break and the shift lock releases. So I'm at a loss as to why the shifter when hooked up won't move the linkage

you should be able to raise it just enough to disengage it from the park ramp according to jeep...if that doesnt work try turning it on then shutting key off in mid stride

hi from uk just out of curiosity ? with engine off try selecting a gear manually by moving the selector link at gearbox from engine compartment if you can feel a selection ? then press clutch and start engine see if car moves with clutch slowly engaged ? if it does? then would suspect the actual g/stick vertical part that fits into the cables gate/selection has broken ? come back with update ? and please give history prior to this fault occuring ?as it would give more of idea what may have gone wrong ?

there are several possible ways this can happen, 1 on the transmission there is a cable that comes from the column, check to see that it is attached to the shift selector . This is located under your brake foot under the truck.
Another, on the column, towards the back of it under the dash, this same cable has a plastic cup that snaps on to a metal ball , it might have broke or just popped off.

I have been suffering from the infamous deteriorated bushing for about 18 months now. Until now, have fixed it with tape. But I want to sell it now and need something more permanent. Anyway, I went to a junkyard today and managed to pull off the entire shift cable in about 1 hour. I'm a novice as well. A few clips at the transmission, pulling the bushing off at the gear shift. Hardest part was getting it through the firewall without totally destroying the rubber. If you have questions, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

OK, simple problem, and a quick fix... (And I consider changing my own oil to be the extent of my automotive education.) I had this happen today. A little online research from the jeep community showed me the external cable that connects your 4WD knob with the arm on the transfer case is held on that arm with a plastic clip that is fond of disappearing.
When the jeep cooled down, I crawled under, found the cable end hanging freely, and simply set it back on the arm. With no clip it will pop off again, but it allowed me to shift back to 2WD and roll home. I understand a zip tie will keep it in place until you get a 3/16 nut of some sort. (Can't be more specific about the nut yet, I'm waiting for more info.)
It was a relief to find out that I didn't need to have anything done with the transfer case, etc... If you show the dealer the problem, I'm told they often want to replace the whole cable, as the clip comes as part of the whole. Waste of time and $$$, and I canceled the appointment with the dealership when I learned the simplicity of the problem.
