Why would the heat blower motor only work when the car is in reverse on a 1991 Lumina?

Wow...that's a new one. About the only thing that could cause this I'd think is some sort of short that when the backup lights come on (only when you're in reverse) or when the shifter itself is in this position, this somehow causes or fixes some sort of a short. You don't mention whether this is a column shift or console shift car, but I'll bet it's a column shifter? Assuming it's a column shifter, I'd probably be trying to get into the dash behind the speedometer and see if there's some wire that got rubbed raw from the sliding up and down action of the column shifter. If it's a console shifter, I really am not sure what it could be, but I'd get inside that console and see if there's something wrong with the wires.

Loose gear shifter on 1998 Ford Expedition?

On my 2000 expedition it was a loose bolt. this bolt aligns the gear shifter with the transmission position. it is located under the dash, just follow the column, it will be on top of the column with a torx bolt (i believe it was a torx) anyways if you jiggle the gear shifter while looking up you will see where they connect together with a bracket with the culprit bolt. Note, make sure you use some locktite or you will have the same problem over and over again. sorry if this seems a little vage, it's late and just seen this question ;)

How do you remove the whole steering column on a 1988 S-10 Blazer 2x4 drive with tilt steering?

First you have to remove the panel from the bottom of the dash board to be able to get to the steering column bolts. Then, disconnect all of the wiring harnesses from the steering column. After this, go underneath the truck and disconnect the shifter linkage from the transmission. You can then remove the four bolts that hold the column up. Then, carefully slide the column out. Once the shifter linkage is against the firewall, rotate the column until you can pull the linkage through the opening in the firewall.

Shifting out of 4wd in 99 suburban?

When you push the brakes there is a clicking in the steering column on a 2001 ford escape?

The 2001 Escape, with the gear shifter on the steering column, has an interlock solenoid located by the shifter assembly. The purpose is to lock the shifter in PARK until you depress the brake pedal. This is to prevent "sudden acceleration" where you engage the transmission with the brake off and the car shoots forward or backward. When you press the brake pedal a switch is closed that turns on the break lights and activates the solenoid, generating a magnetic field that withdraws the interlock pin, allowing you to move the shifter out of Park and into Drive or Reverse. The solenoid can make a clicking noise. We never noticed the clicking sound in our 2001 Escape until this mechanism had begun to fail, locking the shifter in Park regardless of the position of the brake pedal.
