Today ,where I couldn't get out of the driveway after this snowstorm , and incidentally not able to get to work , I'm going to get underneath and look for that switch that I've read about that is mounted on the tranny and see if I can get at that and check it out, maybe it is just sticking, I don't know?
Anything else to check on??? Thanx ,Toni.
Oh, and by the way, this is a 5 speed manual trans. and the dash indicator light does not come on either.

When you press the button on the shifter, you should hear a click from that solenoid pack. If you don't, its time to figure out why.
Is there power? Are they grounded/?
Is there power going to the switch on the shifter?
Did you blow a fuse?

I wasn't able to get the part from my local NAPA store and he didn't even try to see if he could order one, so, I guess its back to the "Evil Empire" to get one from them. Unless one of you guys know of a place where I could order one at a reasonable price??
What I ended up doing was to take a long 1/8" steel pop rivet and remove the mandrel and grind off the head of it and use it as a sleeve and then use a liberal amount of Krazy Glue and "Viola" I was back in business!! Of course this probably isn't a permanent repair, but, it willl get me back and forth to work in the mean time.
There is one other thing that bugs me about this car. Its the intermittent on the windshield wipers. It works good on the slow and fast settings, but, on the intermittent it will keep hesitating all the time its on. It seems like it wants to go, but, it just don't seem to make it. I tried taking a motor off my old '88 and one off my brothers old '81 and neither one did any better. While I was checking them out with a battery charger I noticed that the '81 used less amps so I ended up using that one. Any ideas??? Thanx.

For your wipers, before you tear stuff apart, add another ground to the wiper motor assembly. That's all it took on mine to fix them.

So far the repair on the tee is holding up well. And I can wait until Spring to get another. Thanks for the offer hoozie. I'll probably end up at a local yard to get one as well, as a new dealer one just might cost more than the car's worth. LOL.
