Well, I had already purchased a new Angle sensor so I swapped it in. No dice, still doesnt do anything. So I tried to get the self diagnostics to work, and either there are no codes, or I am not getting it done correctly. So I moved through the troubleshooting and have made it to the part it wants me to test the gear indicator. If I manually shift it, it displays ever gear correctly. So im guess its not that. I plugged in a shift motor that I bench tested and still nothing. I also swapped the ECU and the black box up by the right front wheel with ones i have spares of (unconfirmed they are functional) no change. I have verified i have continuity from the angle sensor to the ecu.
Obviously there are a ton more steps in the troubleshooting guide yet, but I do not think it should be this hard. The fact that its not even trying to shift is odd, yet it throws no codes (assuming Im doing the button/key funtions correctly) I do have another ES shifter setup that I tried and still no change.
