1958 Edsel Pushbutton drive


Recommended Posts

Possibly a servo motor on the side of the automatic trans which moves the selector shaft in the trans as a gearshift linkage would? Possibly some dirty or corroded contacts, internally and/or at the connectors for the wiring harness?

Just some speculation . . .

In many ways your Edsel unit is similar to the Autolite-built unit used by Packard in 1956. After checking for loose connections or a blown fuse, I'd consult your Edsel shop manual. The servicing of the unit was covered in great detail in the Packard manual and I would guess Ford did no less with the Edsel.
