Hi, I'm Cam. May I ask your first name? I am working to get you a fast accurate answer. About your vehicle, This pin, that is in the column? Did you check for power on the 2 wires to it before replacing it?
Ok, and there was power and ground there when it was not working Jeff?
OK, did you use a meter or a test light?
Ok, that may be part of the problem. Can you try a test light instead?
a meter measures voltage potential. A single strand of wire has full potential, but under load it may not be able to deliver proper amperage to operate the circuit.
Yes. If the test ligt does not work then would it be a fuse or What else?
I will have to go get a test light as I am at work and we do not have one here so if you know anything esle that I can check let me know.
Iff the test light does not come on, or it is dim, that means the switch on the side of the transmission, side of the shifter or the brake switch and wiring are the issue.
No, only the one. However, if you ask for my thoughts, I would look at the side of the console shifter first.
Yes, an assembly that not only controls the shifter lock but the ignition interlock.
The switch in this case is inside the shifter assembly. For testing you can try jump the pink in f with the yellow in C and see if the dash switch clicks. Also looking a bit deeper, this does not use the transmission switch like others. Sorry if that has created any confusion.
No, again it is strange. here is the diagram.
