my fairlane wont start ignition most of the time unless i hold the auto stick firmly forward and to the lefthand corner of the gearbox. ive had the same problem with my old au forte too.. i dont really care about it, just wondering if its common/ something i can get fixed easily.

i havent taken it to a tranny guy cos i wasnt sure what a guy in a dress could do for it anyway. actually it doesnt bother me so much so i havent really worried about it, just curious.

edit~ NC fairlane.

Its your inhibitor switch..

You can fix it yourself or get another new or second hand one and it'll solve the problem .

Sounds like a loose gearstick which is making the inhibitor switch tell lies.

i.e. a bit too much play in the stick and the inhibotor switch is providing TCM (is the NC a V8?) with a signal saying its in reverse.

But then, may just be ihnibitor switch and Fuzion's doco makes it a fairly straightforward thing to fix.

And he doesnt wear a dress either :wink:
