Good evening

does it say f in the display ?

if so turn the key on engine off

go off on off on and then tell me what the number is ***** shows in the display

also i will need your transmission model number please.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I will get those things for you from my husband by morning. It is not saying F in the display, if you push it off you can then change gears. We just replaced the started when this began happening, this happened once before when battery's were low. But we charged them and it fixed the issue. I feel like getting 4 new battery's just to see if that will fix it even though it says ours are fully charged
