Q: Gear shift lever broke

This is something that would need to be looked at in-person to see what is broken on the gear shifter, and scan the transmission to see what code is stored in it. You may have a complete shift linkage that needs to be replaced, but the code would need to be diagnosed since there are many possibilities. I recommend that you have a mechanic, like the ones from YourMechanic, inspect and properly diagnose your gear shift lever issue.
