Yes the brake lights are now working.
Yes the brake lights are on and working.
Do I just wait here for another expert or do I need to check my e-mail for the next experts reply.
I don't understand how or when I will hear for "other experts". Please advise.
I haven't received another reply. Can you answer where I might try to obtain the gear shifter cable--new or a used that would be reliable? I understand that this 1996-98 was made by Honda and basically the same as the Odyssey. That Isuzu made one of Honda models inreturn then. So do you know if the 96 Odyssey part could be substituted?
IT IS A COLUMN SHIFT.
Yes, it does and that is how my husband is able to drive it , but only forward as it will not go into reverse.
I AM GUESSING THAT IT WILL NOT GO INTO REVERSE. BUT I CANNOT GIVE YOU A DEFINITE ANSWER UNTIL TOMORROW.
THANKS FOR YOUR HELP SO FAR.
YES BILL SAYS THAT HE IS LEAVING CAR IN NEUTRAL WITH THE BRAKE ON AND CANNOT REMOVE THE KEY (IN NEUTRAL). THAT IT WILL GO IN AND OUT OF REVERSE NOW THAT THE "KEY" GOT IT OUT OF PARK--BUT IT STICKS, IS HARD TO MOVE, BUT EVENTUALLY DOES SHIFT INTO D. HOWEVER, NOT SAFE TO DRIVE IN ORLANDO TRAFFIC.
TODAY I FOUND A PART ON THE WEB THAT SAYS IT IS COMPATIBLE TO USE. CAN YOU FIND OUT IF THAT WOULD WORK?
OE Ford Yf1Z7E395Ba Transmission Gear Select Shifter Cable, Column Shift
I THINK THIS WOULD BE THE PART THE GARAGE SAID WE NEEDED. ??
I understand, but it will go into reverse and the transmission will pull in reverse, it's just the stick binds up and is hard to move due to the cable binding, ask Bill if he sprayed WD 40 on every cable end, and ask him to look out at the tranmission where the cable attaches and see if he can spray some WD 40 on it out there, also, look up under the steering column, anything that moves with the shifter. spray it, it can't hurt. That is a shifter cable, but it won't fit your Isuzu. It's for a Ford. The one you need for your Isuzu, (or this Honda Odyssey in my opinion it's the same part). Is this You can order one at RealHondaParts.com Get one for a 1996 Odyssey. It is component number 21 in this diagram at the bottom. They call it a wire control.
JUST WANTED TO SAY THANKS AGAIN. WE WERE ABLE TO FIND THE PART YOU MENTIONED AND IT IS AVAILABLE IN 3 DAYS. A BIG HELP TO US "SNOWBIRDS"!!
