Hey guys. Its been a long time since ive been on here. I have a problem and looking forward to any replies I can get!
I just bought a 98 GMC jimmy, 4 door, auto, floor shifter. The buttonon the shifter has been sticking and today its just stuck! After doing some reading I have discovered it could be a motor built into the shifter called BTSI (brake transmission shifter interlock) gone bad. Anyone else had any problems with this or know how to over ride it? Or maybe its something else? I dont know for sure! I dont want a safety feature that keeps me driving when it stops working anyway! From what I can tell there is a group of wires that plugs into the bottom of the shifter but when unplugged it still wont let me shift, OR release my key! Also, the shifter is stamped BRAVADA. does this mean its not original or what? Thanks in advance for any help! You guys are the best!
