No shows nothing until I've bang on the dash and even then it still doesn't shift properly.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It only shift down into first manually
GM Mechanic: tim's auto repair, mechanic replied 2 years ago

ok.

you certainly do need to replace the instrument cluster,,these were known to go bad like this.

also,you may need to replace he ignition switch,the electrical switch itself.

i think the reason the transmission isnt shifting is because it isnt getting power t the transmission,,the ignition switch can cause the cluster and the transmission not to work,though,i think your cluster may also be bad sense it will work by jarring it

thanks
