    Default BX auto starter cut out switch

    BX autos have a switch somewhere that only allows starting in P or N. Where is it? Is it near the gearbox or under the selector?

    Needless to say its playing up... and the Haynes manual gives no clues where one might find it...

    Thanks,

    Barry.

    Barry,

    This detail is for a ZF22 Gearbox... NOT SURE if the ZF14 is the same but they are definitely the same vintage and it doesn't look likeit would be too difficult to check...simply remove the cover from around the selector leaver and maybe even the console.

    Otherwise a PM to Alan S would give you the right answer given how much time he has spent on Auto's in BX's lately I'm sure he sees them in his sleep...

    Barry, I seem to recall that the switch is nearer the gearbox and can have a tendency to get covered in grease and gunk. Are you sure it's the switch and not the solenoid on the starter commencing some death throes?

    Craig,

    I picked BruceE's brain when I was testing some spheres, and you are correct.
    It's not only near the gearbox, but under the battery as well, favourite BX spot for critical electrical items. I'm pretty sure it's the culprit as just moving the selector out of park a few times seems to make it work again and the starter was overhauled recently and it was definitely crook at that time. I want to fix this ASAP as this is the car my daughter drives and it was a battle convincing her of the need to put petrol in it, let alone lift the bonnet & fiddle with things.

    Thanks,

    Barry.
