Customer Question
My shifter has gone...

My shifter has gone to god and can't be repaired so I've been told. No parts for it anywhere in the world also been told.. It's a Ssanyong Stavic 2006

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the vehicle have a fuse that enables or disables the shifter?

Have been told by auto transmission place that shifter isn't communicating with car computer. I'm assuming he's checked the fuses. Also been to an auto electrician. I hope they've had to sense to check fuses

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model of your car?

Ssanyong Stavic van

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Been to 2 auto transmission places. One gave up, the second has tried to get new parts but wasn't able to find any in the whole world. Has also been looked at by auto electrician who wasn't able to repair it

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just if he knows where we can find parts

LKQ Worldwide at www.LKQautopart.com also www.car_parts.com these are my best 2 suggestions, may have to identify the vehicle with a US made equivalent, There is no fuse because the issue is a faulty resistor built into the shifter. A very highly qualified auto electrical expert may be able to identify the size of the resistor and wire in a replacement circuit.
