my mini van has been getting stuck in park. i had the brake switch under the dash replaced last april and last week it started all over again. a friend was under the dash and found not one but two switches, both very similar. one i got at the local parts store but the other could only be gotten from the ford/nissan dealer. they weren't even sure what the part was without seeing it. anyone got ideas? it is working again, we replaced the one. i can get it out of park again and the brake lights are working again. i am just curious what the other part is. and do i need it?any help would be great. thanks.... single mom in PA

Mine was the passenger side window in my '96 van. It would go odwn but not back up! I am going to have my brother (who fixes my van) try that. He said it didn't seem likeit was the motor. Without air, it would be nice for the window to work. (even tho it is going to be cold soon) THANKS for the tip. Mamarcie

My throttle was sticking closed after sitting at idle, like while I was waiting for a light to change. I examined the operation of the throttle valve, which seems to be a butterfly valve plate that rotates inside of a circular tube, similar to the classic carb. Evidently, the problem was that the plate was closing too far and binding against the inner wall. This could be demonstrated without the engine runnning by pushing on the throttle to close it tightly, which would cause it to stick. Pushing it closed lightly caused it to stick slightly, so there was a correlation indicating this as the problem. The solution is simple. Just adjust the limit screw that keeps the plate from fully returning and getting stuck. You will find the screw right on top of the throttle assembly, with a small nut to lock it in place.
All of the discussion about cleaning the throttle body seems pointless and over-complicated, if my solution works.

Steve, I'm trying to replace my 2000 Quest driver power window switch. I clicked on your picture file name in the post #1825, but there is no picture posted. Your pictures will be very helpful.
