You need a scan tool to verify a signal from the trans is reaching the pcm. If it is, you have a failed dash cluster. If not then the reason needs to be determined.

A shop has the actual scan tool you need. Get some help with this

Does not mean anything. Each works independent of each other.

Yes, you can but it needs to be verified with a scan tool, not a guess. It is expensive if it is the cluster
