Power Train — Manual Transmission
- Vehicle description: Certain passenger vehicles equipped with manual transaxles (RPO M86) fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS no. 114, "theft protection." When a driver attempts to shift from 5th gear to reverse, a shift inhibitor causes the transmission to be mechanically in 4th gear even though the shift lever indicates reverse gear.
- Dealers will disable the 5th/reverse inhibitor by removing a retaining pin and replace the shifter assembly.
