Re: [DML] Re: Backup light help.

When I first got my automatic, the reverse lights were stuck on in  
park, neutral, and reverse, and the starter would run in park,  
reverse, neutral, or drive, but not in 1 or 2.  Turned out that the  
multiswitch was physically damaged from the outside (nailed by a  
stone or something, I assume). The damage was not all that obvious,  
but replacing the switch/cable assembly cleared it all up.  So, don't  
be so sure that it isn't the switch.
