hello, the gear shift in these models are very problematic so i would not hesitate to tell you the gear shifter is at fault without thinking twice and will need to be replaced. if anything you may be able to try and clean the connector on the shifter but its usually a internal fault with them. slight possibilty the shifter was not plugged in correctly. but most likely the shifter is faulty.
