Hi,knowing the code would help but because of your detailed description of the problem I suspect the problem most likely is the fault of the neutral switch or its adjustment.This is hard to diagnose without knowing the code because this can also be a wiring problem,can you place the shifter in other gears if you release the shift lock?To release you must remove small cover on shifter plate and depress with a small flat tip screwdriver(or something similar).Thanks for your time
