Hi there,

You need to have the config setup in the ABS and PCM set for manual transmission.

A Holden dealer can do this for you.

Hello again,

Do you need any further help?

Assuming you have used a factory harness to eliminate the TCM, then I can't see what else to change. If you haven't done it this way, then you may never fix it.

I hope my advice has been of assistance to you.

Kind regards

Gary
