    NG
    OK
  2. INSPECT PARK/NEUTRAL POSITION SWITCH ASSEMBLY


    1. Inspect the park/neutral position switch assembly Click here.


    NG
    OK
  3. REPAIR OR REPLACE HARNESS AND CONNECTOR (PARK/NEUTRAL POSITION SWITCH ASSEMBLY - ECM, IGNITION SWITCH)


    1. Disconnect the ignition switch connector.

    2. Disconnect the ECM connector.
