Thanks for the info...
Thanks for the quick help...will look into the brake thing, but regarding the ignition switch, I have a Haynes manual that tells me that in order to remove the switch I have to take out the steering wheel which in turn requires that I remove the dash...etc. Looks like the "half-day+" job you say. Some questions: do I need to change ignition keys? is there a place/document describing the 5 min. procedure that you know of?
