Manual/Sport Switch The manual/sport switch is located at the rear of the selector lever assembly. The manual/sport switch is a cam operated microswitch. A lever with a roller is attached to the switch body. When the selector lever is moved from the automatic 'D' position to the manual/sport 'MS' position, the roller contacts a cam on the selector lever which depresses the switch lever and operates the switch. The switch contacts remain closed when the selector lever is in the manual/sport position. The operation of the switch completes an earth path which is sensed by the EAT ECU which switches the transmission operation to sport when MS is selected and deselects sport mode when D (automatic operation) is reselected. The completed earth path is connected to the EAT ECU via the MS LED on the selector lever display which is illuminated by an output from the ECU when MS is selected. Selector Cable The selector cable is a Bowden type cable that connects the selector lever to the manual selector spool valve. AC clip secures the outer cable to the selector lever assembly. The inner cable is secured to an arm which is connected to the selector lever via a 'U' shaped bracket and pin. The transmission end of the outer cable is secured to a bracket on the transmission by a clamp nut. The transmission has an operating lever which is attached to and operates the manual selector control spool valve. The inner cable is attached to the operating lever by a clamp bush and locknut. The clamp bush allows for the adjustment of the selector cable.
