Online retailers, such as AutoZone.com, Amazon.com and OReillyAuto.com, sell transmission shifter cables. The cables come in lengths ranging from 2 feet to 14 feet and from brands such as TCI Auto, ACDelco and B&M.
AutoZone primarily sells transmission shifter cables from TCI Auto, as of 2015, but its inventory includes cables from other brands, such as B&M. Cable lengths range from 2 feet to 14 feet, and they are not vehicle-specific, making them compatible with a wide range of vehicles. AutoZone offers shipping direct to customers' homes, or customers can opt to pick up their purchases from a local AutoZone location.
Amazon's inventory includes transmission shifter cables from ACDelco, Auto 7, ATP and other brands. The cable selection includes both automatic and manual formats, but a single cable does not come in both formats. Unlike most of the cables available from AutoZone, cables in Amazon's inventory are mostly vehicle-specific, so prospective buyers should ensure compatibility with their vehicle before purchasing.
The transmission shifter cables sold by O'Reilly Auto come primarily in automatic transmission formats from brands such as B&M and Hurst. The lengths range from 4 feet to 8 feet. Prices and availability on O'Reilly's website may depend on the customer's location.
