    I have a problem with my 96 Outbac that comes and goes. Out of the blue the
    ABS light will go on, the heater fan will cut out, and---should I stop and put
    the car in park--the automatic transmission shifter will lock in place, (even
    with the foot on the brake). The sometimes cures are kicking my left foot
    against the wall below on and around the interior fuse box, or shuting the car
    off and restarting it (which mayl turn the ABS light off and turn the fan back
    on, but may still keep the shifter locked) or disconnecting the negative
    battery cable for a few moments. I cannot duplicate the conditions that lead
    to this odd occurence because I just don't know what they are. Does anyone
    have a clue as to cause, prevention and permanent cure? Thanks!

    Electrical problem I think. First I would remove a clean the fuses
    associated with the ABS and fan circuits. Then check for good ground
    connections by removing and sand papering the ground wires and attaching
    points. Let us know what you find, eddie
