PRNDL that little indicator tells you what gear the car is supposedly in.

Over tine they can go out of adjustment, and car no go. Usually placing the selector in Neutral and wiggling the handle will get you going.

Cars that have been towed in for illegal parking usually wind up with misadjusted PRNDL because tow tuck drivers pop the rod to prevent car owners from taking their car out of the lot without paying.

They pop the rod from underneath the car so they can take the car out of park, so the wheels will turn to put the car on the bed of the truck. Otherwise, the tires would have to skid across the pavement and onto the bed of the roll back. Almost every tow truck yard is fenced to prevent theft of the cars or parts off of the cars. Tow truck operators need to be licensed if they tow for the public in most jurisdictions.

You've evidently not heard of Rochester's famed towing operators such as Bob Sarfaty who built the industry here. He specialized in stealing cars from private lots. Licensed he was but the Law was just a bumper for Bob. Rochester totally rewrote the Towing Law due to Bob's moves, he ignored it since his operation predated the Law. He also converted his building to a convenience store, failed to pay taxes and held his own auction just days before the State scheduled their auction to get tax money due.

Rochester, where no car is safe from hooks, gained fame when a Court Ruled removing any car from private property without the consent of the car owner is an Unlawful Taking. Towing operators responded with "we got the car, Court is minimally 6 weeks without wheels" and continued to harvest & get paid. Crossbows became popular, and tow operators learned to not park trucks with grills toward the street. Radiators and green juice are expensive, and cops don't care.

There is still debate if Bob was 1 upped by another operator who loaded a van with the wheelchair bound driver still in the process of exiting the van and hauled van + driver to his impound lot.
We also had an operator who hooked a car beside the road and hauled it past the pedestrian owner, a NY Trooper who had run out of gas.

Towing is a tough business in Rochester.

I see what you guys me that you very much for the tips it did move through all the gears even though the key cylinder was stuck forward and even after I replaced it so you're probably right that rod is probably popped. And thanks for the link to the Ignition switch I'm probly gonna have to replace that to

Default Take pictures

Take about 300 pictures, then take more. I always find I'm missing a view I could benefit from later. The pictures you posted show you're on the right track. Especially all the wiring on the left fender....Enjoy!

Default 70

Here is a wiring diagram for a stock 70 98. There will be some additions and subtractions by the coach builder.

This is awesome thank you. I almost broke some ribs wakeboarding the other day so have to wait to get under the car to see what condition the starter is in. Appreciate all the advice.

I miss the time of manufacturers providing detailed diagrams.

GM carried it to the extent of showing the 3 alternator and rectifier in that drawing.
