Cannot shift into Low- 2014 Volt

Postby hughlamb3 » Wed Dec 06, 2017 11:54 am

Greetings! I have joined the tribe and I'm mostly very happy. I am the proud owner of a 2014 Volt Base with 38k on it.

One remote key fob had a dead battery but I had spare 3032s. I did have the joy of experiencing a flat tire less that 12 hours after I bought my car. That was a $100 surprise for a new tire, but looking through the threads I guess I'm lucky my Fix-A-Flat canister was empty! I'm pretty lucky that, as a certified pre-owned Volt, it comes with a 12 month 12,000 mile Bumper-to-Bumper warranty AND a 100K Mile power train warranty. I did NOT but the super deluxe $4,000 extended service contract.

The problem is I cannot shift into Low. I know how to squeeze the trigger, but it just won't go. I have an appointment next week, but I wondered if anyone else has experienced this issue. I assume that the linkage needs to be adjusted and that it is not that I'm not holding my head right. Any ideas? I like in a mountainous region and didn't want to ride the brakes all the time going downhill, regeneration or not.

Thanks in advance,
