    C70 Auto Q

    Is there a stock fault with the gear selector override? Key in ignition,turn to start position and nothing. Move gear selector through it's sequences and then it starts. Anyone?

    sounds like the selector/PNP switch atop the gearbox is worn. They are easily replaced I believe

    Best if you squirt some WD40 - no pun intended - into the PNP switch and move the selector fwds and back a dozen times. Maybe some dirt in the contacts.
