ok I got it to work but now when I flip the switch off it stays on and kills the engine! HELP!! I have to shut the key off and restart for it to release?? The abs and brake light still come on? Does anybody have a clue? I'm sure I'm not the first to have issues with the switch.

Did you take the solinoed out and put in the jumper wire in place of it in the fuse box? I would take your battery cables off and let it reset it self. If you are going to stop and it wont unlock still turn the key off. My tranny builder says that will trash an auto.

If you buy a 33 ohm resister and solder it in line on the wire used as a ground for your switch you do not have to remove the relay. Also on mine I ran the wire down to the plug on the trans and tapped it there (orange with black tracer) it was easier to run down there. My new trans can be locked up in all forward gears works awesome as a engine brake.

Were can you get one of those curcuits? I like the idea of having that relay in still.

Radio shack would have them, (33 ohm resister) or any store like it. The guy who built my trans gave it to me before I left

Not to sound like a ***** but are you turning the switch off before coming to a stop it won't do it on it's own. When I did mine the switch I used had three poles on the back of it I had it hooked up wrong there the first time and it would die as soon as it was put in drive. Make sure the wire used for the ground is on the negative side of the switch this is were I had messed up changed it around and it worked.

I turn it off before I get off the freeway! The switch has only two terminals I will have to check it to make sure it is completely off NO resistance at all maybe the switch isn't fully disengaging?!
