Question

Hi guys! so i had my first problem. i was driving my LeMans 73 without problems and after park and walk the car won't start. i tried a new battery and checking everything, i have lights but when i turn the key it's like dead. i was reading about the starter and the solenoid but i think there is a problem with the security  bad connection of the gear shifter, i am going to try to acces there and see in the column if this connection is the real problem( should i put off the steering wheel?) , anyways there is a way to start the car if this is the problem? someone had something like that?

It's beeing frustating because it is my only car... today a mechanic webt to see it but he said he can't make nothing, he doesn't know what to do.. ( they recomended me this guy because he works with old cars)

 

Thank you!

HI Pauk! A bad connection with the shifter gear , the security system of the automatic .. probably wasn't starting thinking it was in Drive position or something, even if the shifter works well. so i just started moving to adjust the steering wheel up and down and finnally the car started well. I spent all the week without driving the car. lol now i know! ( it still makes this sometimes)
