    If so, there is an adjusting wheel where the cable attaches to the steering column. its a black plastic wheel on a white housing......now i have seen TONS of these white housing broken and in turn it wont hold the wheel correctly. look underneath and if its broken then you need to replaced the shifter indicator. if not then just turn the wheel to adjust.

    Yea, I think will it an auto and it shift by the wheel.... well the lttle organe mark doesn't line up any more and seem to be geting worest..... I've taken it to a few shop and they said it was a cord that needed to be tighten but they want a grip to do it... it sounds like it might not be so hard to do and thought that if I knew what I was looking for it could get it done

    if you only talking about the orange indicator being off and nothing else....... then no. if you having engagement issues or anything like that, then thats a different ball game.
