Problem with my 1998 Chevrolet Astro. 4.3 V6 Question = On my 1998 Chevy Astro, when I put the gear selector into drive, the light that looks like a "red box" that is supposed to be around the letter " D " doesn't come on. After a couple of minutes when I wait or start driving, it comes on and stays on around the letter " D ". Sometimes the red gear selection light may flicker quickly and then stay on. This also happens when Park, Neural or 2 is selected.
The "red box" indicator sometimes stays on around the selected letter, sometimes it flickers and then stays on around the letter, or it may stay off for a while and appear later. The PRNDL321 lights always work properly except it's the red box around the selected gear that comes on late or flickers. What can be causing this and how can it be fixed?
Answer: There are 2 things that can cause this. Either a bad instrument cluster (dash), or a faulty range selector switch. The range selector switch is more probable. This switch is on the transmission. The connector is usually very hard to get of off the switch. The connector is usually almost melted into the switch. A heat gun would be needed to remove. Then the connector would need to be cleaned before plugging into the newly installed switch.
