Shift Interrupt
« on: August 09, 2018, 09:59:36 PM »
I'm having problems getting the shift interrupt to work just right.
Either it hangs up & gives me trouble starting or it holds too long & kills engine.
I came across this info when searching internet for help.
I ordered the updated spring & installed. I will let you know how it works after trying Saturday.

Replace your lower shift cable that goes from the switch to the drive. It's binding up and 99% of the time that's the cause.
