IiHow's this for a 'CON'.... Or maybe just innocent 'Mis-Diagnosis' ..... Guy rang us on Saturday to say he was at the car wash and could not get the gear shifter, on his Clio Auto, out of 'Park' position.... I 'interrogated' him to discover he had been Pressure Washing his car (Not good idea as risk of water in electrics) .... I told him to call roadside assist and get it taken to closest repairer.... Yesterday he phones and says ' repairers diagnosed as computer fault and quoted $1,400 to replace"... I told him that I Had never seen a computer fault preventing the lever from moving out of park.... I suggested he brought it to me so that I could check it out myself.... Here's what I found: Stop lights not working, shift lever lock not releasing to permit lever to move out of park position. So, I scratched my head and thought..Mmmmm, now to move lever from park position you must depress the brake pedal ( safety precaution) .... So if the electronic release on the shift lever does not receive a signal from the brake pedal, then it won't release.... So maybe it has a faulty brake light switch.... Or even e 'Blown fuse in the stop light circuit... So, I check the fuses and sure enough the stop light fuse is blown... I replace the fuse and hey presto... All is well!!!
