Thanks for your suggestion, however I checked the linkage cable, it seems fine. I took the center console out to check it. While inside the center console I checked the shift interlock cable also to make sure it was operating properly. Those cables seem fine. I even checked the brake switch and found that I wasn't getting power from the harness. The fuse was fine. I then noticed the brake lights weren't working. No juice to the brake switch --- jeez, I'm now at a loss. I did purchase a full set of Chrysler shop manuals for the car from Michigan, including a electrical manual. Hopefully it'll tell me which of the 5 wires is supposed to have juice. It'll be a week or more before I get the manuals, then I've got to spend some time figuring them out, if I can. I, like you, figured it had to be something simple --- but I'm stumped. Does this car have solenoids for electrical or hydraulic shifting from Park? I don't want to have a shop remove the trans. Too much money to put into the car. What's your next suggestion? Am I on the right track, or am I off base? Any way you can possibly help will be greatly appreciated. I'll send a nice donation after this Friday when I get paid. Thanks, Steve.
