TH-400 Kick down switch
Hi everyone,

Just connected the kick down switch under neath the throttel pedal last night and now my car drives very well.

But I'm now facing a new probelm. Sometimes the kick down switch doesn't work, and when I kick it the lights and the power system go low! And I can also smell burnt wire! I haven't found anything yet, but I can smell it!

May be, I'm not right buy, I think as the engine and tranny get warmer this happenes!

Any ideas would be highly appreciated.

Get an OHM meter, you have a dead short somewhere in the kickdown wiring.
