what is this for?


Recommended Posts

I have a 1992 Geo Tracker that has a push button that is mounted on the cover that sits on the hump in the car between the seats which also goes around the tranny and transfer shifters.

The button when pushed with the key on activates what looks like a solenoid switch.  It is marked  - Shindengen 61A50 1528.  When pushed  hear a click sound in the instrument panel/cluster somewhere on the left of the speedometer/odometer.  

I cannot find what this is or what it does in the owners manual or the shop manual.  Nor can I find anything on this in the internet.

Sine pushing it, the speedometer is not working properly.

Does anyone have any info on this?

Please answer through this forum or via email (which would be quicker) to fdietsch@gmail.com.

Thanks!

Sounds like someone's aftermarket add-on to me.

Odd that it'd affect the speedo - I have my entire dash out at the moment (re-installing it tonight, actually) and can tell you 100% the speedo is mechanically driven.

Maybe it's someone's speedo deactivator - you know, to help resale value :)

I figured out what it is for.  It is a bypass to the ignition lockout on the shifter. Not needed (when the button is pushed) is to have the ignition key turned to ON and stepping on the brake pedal to move the shifter out from park.
