Afternoon. I have done this repair countless times and I know each step you went thru. There are a couple of connectors you need to make sure are plugged back in. There should possible have been one at the rear of the shifter close to where the left bottom corner bolt fastened to the floor. Then once you have the shifter out.....and about to seperate the halfs to gain access to the broken pink piece.....you have a connector that has to be disconnected at the rear of the shifter before the top half can be lifted off. Double check the connectors. Then if okay...you need to varify the shifter operation. You can install the repair piece incorrectly in relation to the shifter shaft and then you would have issues with no going fully into park or the key wont come out.....etc. Double check everything and let me know the findings.
yeah.....sounds like everything has been done right as you described. Being that we have a check engine light and lightening bolt now.....we need to check the codes. The codes will point us to the next step. Otherwise we checked the obvious which was the repair on the shifter. Now we have to pull the codes.
okay....lets try something different based on the fuses you mentioned. Maybe the wiring inside the console got pinched when the shifter was bolted down. Make sure the wiring is routed around the shifter. None the less......lets do this, find a few fuses that are in question.....let me know exactly what # ***** and if possible the fuse lid description. I can then check the wiring diagrams related to those fuses and see if we cant narrow down the search. If the code is U0104....then thats lost comm with cruise control module. None the less lets find some fuses as described and you make sure to double check the wiring harness that goes by the shifter inside the console.
