Anyone have condensed instructions for accessing the shifter base on a 97 4.0 w/auto trans?
My BTSI solenoid is not always releasing. I want to isolate the circuit and put a bypass switch as the manual and Rave are very scant on repair/diagnostic info.

If I had to make a wild guess, it would be the little handle you pull up to allow you to change gears? (between P/N/D etc)

Not really. I still have no clue what the BSTI is that Ron was referring to. Unless he was thinking about the Bangladesh Standards and Testing Institution, but I am pretty sure he went to school in Australia.

It's the little annoying solenoid that prevents the shifter from moving out of park unless the brake is applied, this causes the pin to retract and allow the shifter to move.
Mine was sticking and inop in hot temps(100F).

We don't have the interlock on our transmissions. Why not remove it all together?

It was easier to add the washers than to remove the wires from the shared plug(gate switch). Also did not know it would set a BECM fault. When I get some time I will find the true fault and restore function, just lazy and too busy right now working on Pinzgauers. My Rover is always behind client rigs :roll:
