      May not be the transmission.

      Sounds like the wire prong in the switch has disconected from the white batten in the shift stick.

      buy a new genuine shift knob, a small grub screen holds it in place

      the switch you click up on the knob has a wire prong which should go through the hole in the top of the white plastic vertical batten inside the shift stick. This alowes you to move the shifter freely when the switch is lifted up.

      First time I have seen colourful language on the site!!
