Can you disconnect the automatic locks on a 1983 Chevy Lumina so they do not lock when the car is put in gear but still use the manual switches?

Yes but it has to be done by someone that knows what they are doing,.

normally there is another fuse for the automatic locks. I don't have this type of vehicle but check your fuse box inside the vehicle. You should be able to just remove that fuse and of course that one will not work.

Backup light switches are different between automatic and manual transmission bmws. If you have the automatic the switch is under the shifter. Disconnect the battery and remove the shifter boot. Unplug the switch wires and replace the switch and reconnect the wires and battery. If you have a manual transmission the switch is on the passenger side of the transmission above the Allen type filler plug. Disconnect the battery, unplug the wires and unscrew the switch with a 19mm wrench. Screw in the new one an torque it down then reconnect the wires and the battery.

I have the same question, the owners manual is wrong about this. I have a 07 Civic 4 door LX automatic. The owners manual has several variations depending on what you want and if its an automatic or manual tranny.

If it has a manual transmission, you simply put it into neutral. If it's a 4x4 and has a manual transfer case, either with a manual or automatic transmission, you simply put that into neutral. If it's a 2wd with an automatic, or a 4wd with an automatic transmission and an electronic transfer case which does not have the option to put the transfer case into neutral, then you have to disconnect the driveshafts.
