The best explanation on why it tickles when you push your belly button is that when the umbilical cord is cut, the nerves leading to it often "hook up" with other nearby places in the body, and that nerve causes the ticklishness when you touch the belly button. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SOURCE: 2003 vector drivers side power window won't stay up

I had the same problem and I ultimately fixed it by removing F5 fuse, reinsurting, then recalabrating each window as described in the manual. Takes less than 5 minutes and doesn't cost $100.

The gear shift is stuck in park. I can depress the button on the gear shift, but it won't move.

Replace the gear shift. The solenoid you pushed down on is jammed. You can't buy just the solenoid.

Can not get toyota cororlla out of park. would not turn over. battery good

Start the engine, depress the brake pedal, press the oval push button attached to the upper side of the gear lever stick and shift the lever to R, N, or D. It should work. If not check the following:
- Push button mechanism and the solenoid for malfunction.
- Brake switch assembly.
- Wiring harness.
You can also release the gear lever by pressing the small red button located on the base of gear lever stick. Simultaneously press the small red button and the push button of the gear lever stick to get it out from P.

I have a fully custom truck 80's style chev reg cab short box with a 454 in it, and i have full power to everything but it will not turn over. the solenoid makes one click. why wont it start?

Try smacking the starter with a rubber mallet, sometimes they brushes will stick if it doesn't get used a lot, other times the solenoid will stick (but still click). A good smack will loosen them up, usually anyway.
I just went through this on a '71 Chevelle that had a new starter on it, the solenoid had started to fail and every time my neighbor tried to start it the starter needed smacked. He eventually replaced the solenoid and didn't have any problems after that.

Gear stick stuck in Park and will not move

The shift interlock solenoid is likely failed.
If you do not hear a click when you put your foot on the brake (and the brake lights illuminate) look in your manual for the location of the shift interlock override button. It is usually behind a removeable panel near the shifter.

Stick a pen inside and push the button to temporarily override the solenoid.

My 1990 Lexus sat with a dead battery for about a year. I replaced battery and it started right up, but I can't get the shifter out of park and into gear.

From sitting, the brake shift interlock solenoid has probably become stuck. There is a manual release near the shifter--you merely insert a key to push down the release. That will get you moving. With the engine running, try gently and rapidly pumping the brake pedal to get the solenoid moving freely. Be sure the brake lights are working.
In the worst case, you'll need to open the console to free the mechanism or replace the interlock.

2004 cts cadillac trunk will not open with remote or button on drivers door.

Check fuse.. Test for power to trunk release solenoid. When door button, or remote trunk release button is pushed. If there is power ( use a 12 volt test light ) most probably faulty release . Hope this helps
