Hi,

Are you experiencing it going into limp mode instantly as soon as you start the car, or does it shift a few times then go to limp mode?
Is the N light flashing when this happens?

Also I noticed you had a concern over the neutral switch as well (which would be related to this concern)? Is there a particular reason you are looking into that, or just speculative at this point?
