yes cylinder lock tuns partially but wont turn on ignition lights ... with clutch depressed still remains in reverse lock.
Expert:  Brian replied 6 years ago.

The reverse shift lock is jammed or has come apart inside. To repair you need to replaced the gears in side the shift which requires you to remove the shift assembly.If you need further help let me know.

Expert:  Brian replied 6 years ago.

I wish you could but the cylinder lock is connected to the gear that is connected to the pin that turns the ignition switch.

Thanks
