You might want to think twice before having it done. The "alarm" is
your horn going off. So anytime you you happen to have the door open
and in reverse...like when backing up in a tight spot, guess
what.....you horn starts blaring. Thanks, but no thianks.
==================I know of 2 tsb's that concern movement after placing the tranny in
One address's a transfercase module scenario on 4x4s, the other is
a parking pawl defect.
Seems to me that when Audi got caught with the problem, (with the help of 60
minutes, I think?), they put a switch on the brake like Ferd used so that it
wouldn't come out of park without pressure on the brake pedal??
In most cases I would be willing to bet that it isn't the vehicles fault..
if the driver is in too much of a hurry to apply the parking brake, then you
can bet he didn't take the time to ENSURE he had properly placed the tranny
in park. BTW, my tranny won't come out of park (if properly put into park)
without the brake on, M.
were any of them automatics? *g*
did anyone else think of "senior moment" when they read the "recalled my truck"
It's not that I like relating with you guys....but....being as the
chevy rooms gone to
speaking of Senior moments...
I had a old guy "show" me how he was checking his tranny fluid a couple
ago. He came to the shop saying his fluid level was wrong. After I
level for him and informed him it was correct, he comenced to inform me
had to be wrong.
So....after chatting him up for a while, I asked him to come out and
check it himself.
It wasn't long after walking outside that I found out............
he checks his fluid with the car in gear......parked against the
because "someone" told him to check it in gear.
Needless to say...he left a happy cussingmer.
still makes me chuckle
~never,ever,never....ever.....say you've seen it all~
