Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
I am sorry for the long wait
you can drive it for as long as you like with the solenoid linkage disconnected just remember the van will shift out of park WITHOUT stepping on the brake pedal
you should be able to pop it off and it will shift out of park for you WITHOUT stepping on the brake pedal
you should be able to unplug that solenoid and remove it from your column to show them it
how are you making out ?
