Hi there. The problem you are having with your transmission 1-2 shift/2-1 shift could be a shift solenoid issue. The shift solenoid could be operating intermittently. The dealership, that originally diagnosed and sold you the repair, should be repairing your vehicle under warranty. The wiring harness could be at fault and should be able to be repaired, rather than replaced. Not sure why, the recommendation is being made to replace the wire harness. I recommend having your vehicle inspected by a certified technician with YourMechanic.
