I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.


thank you for your attention to the rating requirement.


there are a few things that can cause this unfortunatley.

there is a known leak issue at the electrical connector for the transmission that cause cause bizarre codes.
there is also a known internal leak that can cause these codes.
finally it could be the selector level position switch itself that could be the cause.

unfortunately more speciifc diagnostics will need to be carried out to verify.
