'01 Rodeo with intermittent transmission issues. Occasionally when gear
select is moved from Park to any other gear the gear indicator light
(between the speedo and tach) will not illuminate. When it does this
the transmission shifts erradically (very hard 1-2 shift especially).
Sometimes wiggling the select lever will correct (light comes on tranny
shifts as advertised). Other times the car has to be turned off and
allowed to rest for 5-10 minutes. Local (somewhat) stealer says that it
is the Range/Mode(?) sensor and will cost ~$350 to replace. Anyone have
experience with this? Can the sensor be changed by the average
Also, wipers will not work in intermittent mode. When intermittent is
selected the wiper will travel about 4-6 inches then stop. Must select
"On" mode to complete wiper travel and select "off" at the lowest point
to prevent wiper from stopping in the middle of the windshield. Read
somewhere that there is a relay somewhere near the glovebox that is the
culprit. Forgot where that information came from. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
