Q: Manual shifting not working

asked by on

All of the gear selector lights are on. The manual selection of gears does not work, though auto shift works just fine.

The wiring harness should be checked for any shorts. Flexing with the trunk lid could cause shorts. I would recommend having a certified technician verify this issue in order to diagnose your manual transmission and perform the necessary repairs.
