Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Have you checked the transmission fluid? This is the most common cause of your issue.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The fluid is fine. It's an electrical issue the vehicle will not start. Code 507d
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 10 months ago.

Whats your battery voltage?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
battery is brand new
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 10 months ago.

And the voltage is...?

And you still want to claim its not a battery issue?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
you serious???? what kind of answer is that. battery is fine and tested. the damn thing wont even will not respond when you push the push start. the only code present is a 507d parking gear incorrect disengagement. So, by my estimation if the computer thinks its not in park it will not start the vehicle. What I need from you is information about the code. if you don't have it just say so.
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 10 months ago.

The code and the no start are two different unrelated issues. If you would like I will opt out and see if another expert can help you.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
you don't have any info on the code?
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 10 months ago.

Yes. Its usually caused by low transmission fluid and will not keep the starter from engaging.
