intermittent shift lock / no horn / no cruise problem
Posted 30 September 2011 - 08:50 PM
last year i replaced the clock spring from a 96 w/ 125k miles. this fixed the no horn / no cruise problem. i do not remember a shift lock problem before the repair.
but today, for the first time, i had a shift lock problem. i couldn't get it out of park. no combination of pushing, pressing or shifting would get it to unlock. so i removed the shifter trim piece and used the manual release.
then, while driving, i noticed i had no horn / no cruise. GREAT, i need another clock spring. but i continued on my way and at some point my horn returned to service. (i couldn't test my cruise since i was on gravel , back woods , roads.)
once it got to my destination everything seem to work fine, horn and shift lock.
later, several hours, when it was time to go home my shift lock did not work. checked the horn, no horn. press, push, wiggle, fiddle. now they both work. (about a 5 sec. time span.)
what the hell?
has anyone ever seen or heard of this problem????????
this feels like i have ghost in my car.
