Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If you replaced the gear box from auto to manual you may need to have the gear box wiring changed out and computer and the computer reprogrammed.The programming in most all cases has to be done by a dealer unfortunately as this will require their computer to do this reprogramming and their access to the programming mode/operation.

I suspect the gear box swap out is causing the issues here and first the wiring needs to be checked to make sure it is fully compatible and if o.k. the computer replaced and programmed.This will require special programming by a dealer to correct this here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
