Mine thinks it's a cobra too

If the cable locked up, it could have stripped the teeth off of the plastic drive gear at the trans end of the cable... penetrating lube works wonders to free up stuff like that. Only problem is, it might be a real mother to get to. The instrument cluster will likely have to come out... I'd for sure check the plastic drive gear, no matter what you find wrong elsewhere. It would suck to get it all back together, and have it STILL not work
