autostick and transaxle shift rod???
here is my situation. my brother had a code that said the solonoid pack was bad in the tranny on his 2004 300m. i said no problem, bring it over. I dropped the trans pan, pulled of the trs switch and undid the pinch bolt for the shift lever. I did NOT move the shift rod. i realized i had enough room to pulled out the solonoid pack and replace it with the new one. I did just that. I never messed with any of the actual shift rod assembly. I bolted everything back up, everything went smooth. filled it up with trans fluid, and took it for a test drive. It was running fantastic!!! then i tried to put it in autostick mode. IT REFUSES TO EVEN GO IN!! what i'm wondering if anyone knows, or maybe someone can check for me. When you put it in autostick mode. does it physically turn the shift rod on the transaxle. or is it strictly electronic position???? please help, i don't want to tear this thing back apart if it is a bad shifter cable or gear shifter!!! thanks for all your replies!!!
