2014 RAV 4 AWD won't shift into drive

Hey all,

I haven't been on here much as fortunately I haven't had many problems with my RAV4.

However the last couple of days it was a little difficult to put into drive. The shift lever didn't seem to quite engage all the way. But it ran / drove fine.

Just now it won't go into drive at all. If I hold the shift lever in the drive position it will work but it pops into neutral if there's no pressure on it. Also check engine, AWD and TRAC lights came on.

Heading out to check basics. Help would be appreciated.

Keith

The code was p0705. For future reference this means a chipmunk has placed a walnut in your gear position sensor. Problem solved.

Once rodents get into a car, you'll have a hard time keeping them out. Be sure to check the entire underside and engine bay for nesting activity now. Check the cabin air filter and under the plastic molding over the wiper motor assembly.

Prevention is the best key. HD and Lowes sells MouseX, good for chipmunks too. Put one under the car when parked. Do not let the bait get wet.

Hope this helps you out.

Have a good day.

Hahaha


Is that what the service manual lists p0705 as?
