Don’t Blow Your Fuse

The vehicle involved was a 1998 Honda Passport 4WD with a 3.2-liter V-6 and 4L30-E transmission. The shift indicator in the cluster was not functioning properly, and the transmission was shifting hard. The indicator showed P in Park and 1 in D3, D2 and D1, and it didn’t light up any other time. This seemed to be pretty straightforward, since the mode switch (range sensor) has a high failure rate.
