puts my whole car at an issue with drunk passengers, could be parked on a hill, and one of them could throw it in gear even though no brake is pressed... they would start rollling backwards, notice they are rolling, throw it back in park, break the parking pin, car would continue to roll, hit another car, totaling out both... and then id get charged with open bottle or something dumb
anyways, bill asked me in a PM to descibe how this worked, so i went and checked:
when you press the shift ****, that little lever moves back 1/2"
with the cable connected and the brake off, it would not let the cable move, therefore not letting the button go in
witth the cable connected and the brake on, it would let the cable move and therefore let the button go in
