Just like the three-spoke chrome wheels on RRCs which were a US dealer thing


So the US dealers are to blame for blinging-out those pedestrian-looking wheels with chrome? Why does that not surprise...

Dan,

You have more trivia than me ... so, do you know whether Mosswood green was only on Brooklands edition LSEs, or was it available on other 1994 vehicles? I prefer the mosswood to the Brooklands green, but you would have thought the Brooklands Edition would have been Brooklands green ....

Is this part of the Grey Poupon script? Like quoting Monty Python or something?? :-)

The t-case shifter problem is most likely due to a bad solenoid. Very common for these to go bad, you can remove the solenoid fairly easily (getting to it is the fun part!) It doesn't care what gear you're in, as long it's not in Park, it should unlock. I believe the solenoid is controlled by a micro switch inside the shifter housing, if you remove the shift knob and shifter bezel you should be able to see it. The gear selector switch is a simple on/off switch on the tranny that is basically the Neutral Safety Switch but also tells the ECU that you're either in Park/Neutral or Drive/Reverse. These don't often go bad but it's certainly possible. I have a couple. Will the engine start in gear, or have you tried it?

I do know a few people who swear by the EAS, most of them swear at it and then switch to coils. Kudos for keeping it working as long as you can! I've never actually driven an RRC with EAS. I have two '94s. a SWB and a LWB as well as three '95 LWBs. All five were originally EAS trucks that were converted to coils before I got them. And I've done a couple of conversions for other people who gave up on the EAS after it just got too expensive and problematical to keep working. One was a '95 that had good air springs, a new compressor and good valve block but had so many electrical faults with the system that he finally gave up on it.

My '94 LWB is also BRG (known as Brooklands Green) one of my favorite colors.


I'm not ruling out bad solenoid, but I think the solenoid is getting bad info right now. The red indicator always shows Park and I get CEL 69 with the associated engine "hiccup" on the freeway, so I assume that the switch that tells the ECU what gear its in is bad. I thought I'd read that the tcase solenoid only allowed you to move it with the trans in Neutral, and it was locked in all other gears.
The engine starts in Park and does not start in Drive. I haven't tried it in any other gear - I'll give it a go tonight, wonder what will happen in Neutral.

The paint tag shows Brit Racing Green. I thought Brooklands was some special edition or something...

Small update - the truck starts in P & N, and does not start in any other position, so that's good.

I think that's normal right?
