    Hack of the day: Bill made a box to fire the shift solenoids manually.

    He didn't explain why, but it seems that the wires require the load of a light bulb on each in order to function properly.

    Bill beat me to it: he was able to fire the solenoids manually with a couple of jumper wires.
