I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Pleaseunderstand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problemwith the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computerdata/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch thevehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. Note there may be an issue where the complexity of the issue will require a Premium Service. This service will be an addition to the normal question cost. Usually it does not come down to this but keep in mind!! I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help youthrough it.Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.

ok the shifter tape is it damaged or has any drink spilled in the shifter area?
what about the magnet of the tape did you check the board by any chance ?

sorry for the delay can you tru disconnecting the instrument cluster then try to communicate to the ecu. let me know
we are just trying to get the scan tool to communicate with the ecm . since you have no communications at all by removing the cluster will force the scan tool to communicate through k line . you should have communication through k line
no i did not!!
no pic at all!!
need a vin # to get the diagram
pin 7 is the k line . so something like a module is shorting the k line !!
