Hello,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

Trans is in neutral when not in gear and thus should have no bearing on if it is running or not.

Does applying the park brake have any effect at all on the unit?

Thanks,

Joe

Have you inspected the linkage to make sure it is still attached and or has not broken?
