About the clockspring; perhaps. Since my "upshift" (limiter) paddle works, wouldn't that negate the possibilty that the clockspring is the culprit? It could definitely be the issue, but there are also numerous wiring harnesses before the clockspring comes into play.
Thanks for pointing out the obvious and assuming I have no idea what kind of car I drive. I called them paddle shifters because that is exactly what they are.
I have a problem with them, so I had to use some sort of noun to indicate what my problem was for, sorry I didnt use your politcally correct term of "top gear limiter".What they are called doesn't matter, the question I asked does, your post does not help the community.
Thank you very much to those of you that had a helpful response to my question, your help is much appreciated, as I browse these forums regularly and it is you all that makes this a great forum.
lol good answer megaman, any luck on finding the solution to your problem? thats a new one to me I would like to know how to solve it just for future references...
Megman - no, I purchased the replacement electrical relay, but after replacing, it clearly wasnt the relay.
I'm under the impression that there is a faulty wire, or wire harness though, since the up**** paddle works perflectly fine. Not sure how the clockspring would play into this, but I'm also not a steering wheel or electrical expert.
I'm wondering if there's a way to test each individual wire? There's a rainbow of wires in there...
I want to find an entire clockspring from a scrapyard, and attempt a replacement. Easier said than done, though.
