Micro switch shift lock override

Post by enotslim » Tue Jan 08, 2019 9:58 pm

1998 v70 t5t requires shift lock override button to leave park. I dissasembled and tested the switch manually. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. When not i can usually jump the switch terminals and the solenoid works. Everytime i reassenble the switch and solenoid it does not work. Could be intermittent switch failure. Before replacing switch should I check anything else? Other likely causes of this failure? Solenoid and brake switch clearly work. But so does the microswitch ... some times.
