Due to age and sun exposure, the interior wood trim cracks and the finish gets a cloudy haze. Replacement if the trim would be the most common solution to the problem.

Due to wear, high usage vehicles can experience ignition lock and tumbler failures. The ignition lock cylinder will generally require replacement to correct this concern.

Due to wear of the internal drive gear, the speedometer can stop working.

Now its sometimes wont start in N I read that it possibly is a sensor on transmission where would that sensor be located?

Is this an electronic linkage or mechanical?
