Thanks for the help guys...
Here's the deal. Its a 350/Turbo 350 car, with
center console factory shifter, PS, and factory tilt.
I think I found the problem. The shifter needs to be adjusted. When I put the "horseshoe" in the "PARK" or all the way forward position, the car is actually in reverse. This corresponds as I shift downward through the gears.
So basically I'm unable to get the tranny into the park position. I assume there is a cable adjustment that realigns the shifter into the correct points.
I imagine if I adjust the shifter cable and put the car into park the key will then release.
Here's another thing I didn't think about.... [img]graemlins/clonk.gif[/img]
I did replace the horse shoe handle when this problem started to happen. I didn't touch the base or any of the swiches. I just unbolted the old cracked shifter handle, and bolted the new one in the same place. Before that the gears appeared to line up (I'm not 100% sure), and the key definately worked corretly. Maybe installing the horseshoe handle misaligned the tranny linkage. I took my time and everything bolted up without any issues, but perhaps something is out of whack..
I'm I on the right path here? Any tips on making the cable adjustment...
