Problem With Gear Indicator Not Allaigned

1999 Lincoln Navigator.
When I place shift lever in park or drive or any gear it stopped being properly alligned with the appropriate Letter on the Dash above steering column. For instance, I plave lever in park, it goes in park, but indicator shows it as being in between park an reverse, it just started doing this. Can anyone help this disabled Veteran please?



Is it safe to drive it like this? Any chance it would jump out of gear or into park or reverse while driving?

Adjust the pointer cable. It will drive just fine.

Exclamation Re: Problem With Gear Indicator Not Allaigned

Here's how to adjust it:

1. Remove the upper instrument panel steering column cover.
2. Place the transmission control selector lever in the (D) position.
- Rotate the transmission control selector lever clockwise until it bottoms out (first gear), then rotate two detents counterclockwise (D position).
3. Hang an eight pound weight on the transmission control selector lever.



4. Center the pointer in the middle of the (D) position.
- Rotate the thumbwheel located on the bottom of the steering column to adjust the pointer.
5. Remove the eight pound weight.
6. Carefully move the shift control selector lever from detent to detent and compare with transmission settings.
- Readjust if necessary.
7. Install the upper instrument panel steering column cover.
