My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

Unfortunately, I am not showing a diagram for this myself as well.Check the wiring running to the control assembly for any issues with broken or corroded or damaged wires at all.If an issue is found it will need to be repaired to resolve this fault here.In some cases, the shifter panel assembly/control assembly can fail or act up internally causing this issue here with it needing replaced.You would have to have this tested further to see if this is the cause but I would check wiring running to it for any connection or wiring issues needing repaired.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
