    I don't think Autozone's website information will be too helpful but its free. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_infoThere is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals or try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and get an online repair manual subscription. Check that the brake lights work, system requires brake light switch input to come out of park.

    Cost of repar is about $960. Not counting towing. The security box under your shifter needs to be replaced. Part will most likely have to come from Germany,
