Answers :

I would hazard to guess that the cable is frozen in its housing from rust and moisture, and the light is a random event.  I will gradually slither back to it's rest position in time from vibration alone.  You should go underneath and wiggle the cable to help it return.  If the cable is badly rusted, try to avoid using it until you can shoot penetrating oil down it or replace it.  The cause may actually be corrosion from wetness and salt that the car had before you parked it, and not so much freezing.   Japanese cars from the 80s are notorious for getting rusty, especially their hardware.
