So I bought some terminals and switched them all out added some wire but now my key stays stuck and my automatic start does not work is the solenoid bad ? It will shift in and out of park fine and key will come out only if I touch the green wire to the purple with my foot pushed on the brake

    The bat+ should go away when in park, but all kind of things happen in Potwin Ks.

    No your shift solenoid may be the problem.

    Everybody thinks to just replace the parts. It needs to be verified. If we were just changing parts until we find the problem you as a customer would get pissed. Verify the fault.
