Hi, the 034 and 130 fault code indicate a fault with the communication between the gearshift assembly and the transmission control module. Your problem could be a faulty electronic gearshift assembly or a faulty transmission control module. I'd first inspect the module for transmission fluid contamination. If there is no transmission fluid in the module I'd suspect a bad gearshift assembly. You need to make sure all of your fuses are good in the left and right fuse boxes under the hood and make sure you have power to the transmission control module and the gearshift. You also need a factory level scan tool to erase the fault codes in the transmission control module.
