shift indicator

Has anyone re-set your shift indicator? (little red stick tells what gear you're in) For what ever reason mine has jumped from park to reverse and shifting to drive, gassing it and find I'm in neutral...makes me look like a idiot and I don't need the help. Ogre

If memory is correct there should be a wheel thingy under steering coloum, turn it to reset your indicator.

Sometimes the plastic price that the wheel spins in is broken. Crazy glue is your friend.

Another option when the bracket breaks is small zip ties. I had to do this to mine.
