    Ok, Looks like I have a small issue I hope doesnt turn into a large one. I was explaining how an automatic transmission works to my 10 yr old daughter and I was manually going through the gears to show her the difference, except when I went from D to 4, the shifter moved, but the light on the dashboard went blank. Not D or 4. I could feel the truck stay in D(5th) however. While it is in 4 on this shifter, I knocked on top of the shifter and the light lit up for 4 on the dashboard and I could feel the truck got to 4th. Apparently it is some electrical issue with the shifter. Anyone have this issue? I may tow one day soon and I need 4 to stay in 4.
