I was helping someone the other day on Facebook about a shift cable problem.

The original part number I have ordered in the past is discontinued.

Was able to find this part number - 4593215BB. Says it replaces our original cable which was 5114093AA.

I can not guarantee fitment but wanted to post here.

If someone orders one please let us know if it works!

There are actually 2 "classes" of shift cable for LH cars with consoles.

PRE 05/26/02 Production Date 4593215BB / 459321BA / 5114093AA
At this time available here: https://www.moparpartz.com/p/73966116/5 ... nvCPMnKsJc
For a reasonable $$

AFTER 05/27/02 Production Date 4578168AA / 4578168AB
Appears to be rare at this time.
Difference unknown at this time Researching....
UPDATE https://300mclub.org/forums/viewtopic.p ... 2&start=20
according to post #306410 "You would need to replace the shifter - the details of attachment of the cable at the shifter are different. Also, the details of the shifter-ignition interlock cable are different - so you would need to also get the shifter and the interlock cable to upgrade to the later design shifter cable."
FWIW I can not locate ant difference in the shift assembly part numbers and or the lock cable. Only the Shift Cable for a strange reason.
If anyone can confirm these differences please post your notes
Also someone PM me with a VIN after 5/27/02, all I have are pre

Above part # information confirmed with early & late VIN's

Maybe five years ago i used the #5114093AA for $85 and it works well on 2001 model year.

BEfore replacing this cable, shifting gears was sometimes very stiff especially in the winter months w cold weather.

New cable made a huge difference; shifts like butter

Interesting, I was only aware of the shift cable being revised for 02-04, not that late 02-04 was different and apparently not directly interchangeable?

Are you going to parts stores?

Those are dealer only part numbers. If you call you local dealer they should be able to help and verify the part number. You won’t find a shift cable at a local chain parts store.
