Engine are in good condition. Nothing wrong with the engine. I think the problem start with the gear position. It will not start with indication '-' position. It will start with 'N' position only. I cannot troubleshoot with out wiring diagram. If I have diagram I will try to jump the wire to make the ecu think its in 'N' and conform the motor are unserviceable.

Soorry mr dave

i think u don't understand my problem. My car don't have any of that. I have sensodrive, so at gearbox selector only have +, -, N and reverse. So how can I select P when no parking selection. All the basic thing that u mansion to me, I have done. Now I need to check the wiring system to determine what the cause for that problem. I'm also mechanic and I already check all the wire nothing found. The only thing to do now, is to check for the system. ECU already send to workshop for check and the condition are ok. Actuator for clucth also change. The last thing to check are actuator for gear shift. That I need a wiring diagram but I didn't have. If I have have that I can understand the operation of the system and I make some decision how to repair it.
