No kidding..I really didn't do anything.Maybe something had fallen down there and when I flipped it it fell great now and a nice tight shifter.
Hmm, perhaps is was to do with the bushing not holding the shifter properly and thus not making a connection in the circut?

That thought crossed my mind prior to doing this whole thing too.

But the lights actually started working properly before I hooked the linkage back together under the car.
