PRNDL (Neutral Safety Switch) problem
Howdy! Well, I got a rebuilt transmission installed on my 1994 Bonneville SSEi. Not cheap are they? Anyway, the car has always had (since I got it) a code showing the PRNDL error (which is the neutral safety switch). The trans shop told me that this problem (the neutral safety switch) probably caused the trans to burn up... huh? The trans always shifted fine and would NOT start in any other position other than park or neutral, even with the code. How could this error code, which concerns a safety switch in the console, cause the transmission to burn up? Doesn't make sense to me. I think they just wanted to replace the switch for me (extra $$$) but I don't know everything about computer controlled cars... The switch is $113 at the on-line auto parts store, probably more at a dealer. On the other had, not too hard to replace. Just the time consuming pain of removing the console cover and switch... Any help out there?
