Ouchies - it sounds like there is definitely an electrical short somewhere. Electrical problems are absolutely the worst, they're so hard to locate.... Additionally, someone might think about relocating this post to "Electrical" or Problems and Solutions"

I agree. And I made it so.

:D

I think I may also have an answer for this. Unplug the DRL module (C2074), which is located just above and to the left of the brake pedal hinge, then try to shift into gear again.



If that doesn't work, reconnect the DRL module and let me know.

Not a problem!!!

I hope this will be an easy fix, whatever it is.

Me too. Replacing a fried DRL module is much easier than trying to troubleshoot wiring issues.

usually when u get an odd issue like this it means that a live wire is feeding into a ground somewhere. I am good at troubleshooting wiring so if you can't find a fix let me know I will walk through it with you and see what we can find out for you.
