its the switch that reports to the ECU what gear the transmission is in apparently...
When it was faulty it was stopping the torque converter from locking.
Can you notice the difference with the inhibitor switch replaced, ie does the car feel more relaxed when cruising(the engine doesn't sound too elastic bandish), reason why i'm asking is i might have to findout if dads car might need this switched replaced. At 120km/h the trans should lockup, but it doesn't seem to do it.
