Hello everyone, This evening when I tried to move the car, I had no connection at the gear selector, just moved up and down as though the car was not running, never had this happen before.
Aside from the obvious , being a fuse or something, How would I check the gear cut-off relay on the fuse panel,to see it that's the problem and / or could it be something else ?
Help greatly appreciated, need to move the car to our new home.
Thanks, Bob G.

When was it moved last? What year car is it?
Use a test light to check the pins either side to ensure that there is a feed in and out.
You can usually see which terminal goes to which rivet on the fuse board and check there. (or check them all.)

Hi Robert, consider looking at the actuator loom which is attached to the actuatorhttp://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Concorde-Aircraft-Rolls-Royce-Olympus-593-Jet-Engine-Electrical-Plug-/141167085408
as in picture shown, if you have no power to this here lies the problem. I had this very situation about 2 years ago , the connection at this plug lost contact hence no power. hk

Hi Robert, its under the car attcahed to the side of the gearbox to the actuator as pictured http://www.ebay.com/itm/ELECTRONIC-SHIFTER-MOTOR-shift-solenoid-actuator-Rolls-Royce-Silver-Shadow-1967-/140613558637 This also might be of use http://rrtechnical.info/SY/TSD4200/m/m4.pdf pages 33-36 fonund on this site.
I managed to salvage the plug, had to solder a wire and had to make a new single pin.Robert just to say this is a delicate job... as if you disconnect or dislodge more than one wire, while trying to fix one .. it may make the job complicated?. if you do require a new one
try google type in "rolls royce silver shadow actuator loom". Finally to say... I would check all the simple options first as advised by Paul, with a bit of luck it might be as simple as that.
