Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, based on the described symptom, foremost suspect would be the gear position sensor. Check the sensor itself, connectors and the wires leading from it to the instrument cluster.

what do I need to do to check the gear sensor?
Expert:  Louie replied 2 years ago.
The continuity function of a multimeter is needed. Locate the light green/red wire running from the gear position sensor to the ECM. Temporarily disconnect the connector that holds this wire. Check the continuity of this light green/red wire to engine ground.Normally, this wire would show a 0Ω reading to the engine ground when the gear is in neutral. If not:• connector/pin issue (least likely);• break in the wiring (likely);• faulty gear position switch/sensor (most likely).
