ThanksÖ.
The shift interlock solenoid is used to keep the shift lever from being moved out of Park and/or from Neutral to Drive or Reverse---it will not move out of Park, Reverse or any of the Drive positions unless the brake pedal is depressed. This solenoid is at the bottom of the mounted steering column and works extremely well as an accidental gear engagement without a conscious effort being made to select a gear. It can be seen here in the outlined area:

There is a single wire from the Central Junction Box (inside fuse panel) to the solenoid---when/if its fuse is open you cannot shift from Park or Neutral into any gear.

IF the Raveloc had the third channel I mentioned this would be a fantastic circuit to interrupt as yet one more way to thwart would be thieves. Sadly the Ravelco's we have do not have that third channel. If we disable the starter circuit and inertia switch circuit that should be enough to dissuade crooks to run away.

If you have an EVTM that entire circuit is on its own page(s) in that document.

Yes, see these areas:



Green box, base of actual shift lever, red arrows oft-mentioned shift tube bushings and yellow arrow pointing to shift lever detent plate. Over time they each wear enough to become sloppy feeling.

Detent plate closer:



The shift lever detent plate and/or shift tube bushing straps can also work themselves loose so that should be checked.
