Ok, I went ahead and took the cable off and set the overdrive as if the handle was in. I tried to pull the car out of the garage and problem number one. It will not go into gear. So after pushing it out to the street, I took it for a ride down a long road. So, its definitely working. I noticed it in third doing about 50 and had that free wheel when I let off the gas instead of what felt like a standard trans wound up to high. So I presume that the lockout switch is an issue but if I can get the handle to work then I could manually make it work.
