    Re: Transfer case shift cable routing

    The cable should exit the centre of the hole, just like the transmission control cables do.

    The problem is with how the cable has been installed, not where the hole is.

    That isn't the way it's supposed to be, you need to find out why it is displaced.

    Either it hasn't been installed correctly or theres something bent/damaged underneath.

    If you go back to page 1 of this thread, Tim details the green wire well.

    He also makes a note about the potential for "thermal runaways", so best to get it sorted before heading out on the road.

    I don't think stomping on the gas pedal can hurt the TPS, otherwise, there would be a heck of a lot more failures.
