hey guys

i have recently purchased a quick shift module for my 1996 Ef Falcon. Today i changed the small switch for a bigger missile switch-type switch. i went to start the car and it would start, not even turn over.

I didnt dis-connect the battery when i installed the switch and dont know if this was the problem.

ALL fuses where checked and no damage was observed.

After it was seen that the missile switch didnt work, i changed it bak to the old switch and still nothing.

if anyone has any ideas or suugestions, pleeze dont hesitate to conntact me on fordfan_josh27@hotmail.com

thanks guys

yeah try both park and neutral.. can't be anything to do with the switch because the car would still start.
If the wiring or the switch were a problem your car would start, but would only let you drive it in 3rd gear (limp home mode)

not to harp on about it, but try moving it to neutral and giving it a go there. my selector switch died one day and it wouldnt start in park...only started in neutral

it could just be really screwed up coincidence it died on the same day.....
