[DML] Re: Car alarm/remote starter.



The situation probably was that the car would not start in any
position (including neutral and park). The "mechanic" figured out it
was the park-neutral safety circuit preventing it and instead of
fixing the problem he just bypassed it. Few would even notice but ....
one day... KABOOM! Imagine the car stalling in traffic. The light
changes fast and the owner, in a hurry, tries starting it in gear
while stepping on the gas. He probably would not even know what
happened! Keep in mind this is an automatic. You do not usually shift
as you are driving! Maybe you move it to neutral but maybe you moved
it just a little too much and now you are in REVERSE! Or maybe the
thing is totally misadjusted and you were in 2nd all the time and now
you just put it into 3rd. Could be the reason it wouldn't start in
neutral or park in the first place!
