Man I wish my car was that clean. No wonder I'm having issues with the linkage.

I took the 2 bolts out that hold the sensor on the gear box and saw that they are slotted for rotational adjustment. I'm thinking I can adjust this to make the computer happy. I tried adjusting it for a bit, but it was too cold to keep playing. This weekend will be above freezing so I'll try again later. I was able to get 'B' back by adjusting. But still wasn't able to stop the warning lights.

After adjusting the shifter switch, I'm able to get 'B' driving mode back. Man I really missed that.

I still get the check engine light whenever I start the car while in Park. RBS and Turtle mode are now gone. I've found that if I turn the car to start and immediately shift out of Park (before the system initializes and beeps), I do not get the check engine light. It will return if I shift back to Park.

I'm hoping this is just a left over warning from a weak 12volt battery. I did replace it, and had the new one checked to make sure it was good.

I just got the latest recall notice, so I'll take it in to have that done and hope they clear the warning without charging for that. :?
