    Had to buy part from dealer. The part came in two versions (8 pin or 12 pin) depending on the electrical plug in. Ours was the 8 pin. Cost $100. Put the part on by ourselves in about 15 minutes (part of time to find size wenches needed). Problem seems to be fixed. Thank you.

Probably the TRS or MLP senor (depends on the year) on the tranny. It tells the PCM what gear you want to be in.

Located on top of the tranny and is fan shaped.

Radio only plays sometimes

check the antennae connection. typically a large coaxial plug into the radio. designed to maintain a grounded connection more than the actual signal input.

My radio/CD player constantly says "ERR" and CD's won't play anymore. It doesn't show the time or the radio station either, just "ERR". I can hear it, like it's trying...

HI lisasmith566 IT is not a fuse problem .
the problem is your the CD part of the radio
must likely the cd is stock or more likely the cd drive motor is defective .
FIRST try pushing eject on radio and see CD comes out if not you need a new radio .

good luck vote

While in park, get the movie playing. Then press on the "Audio" button. This is the button that displays the speaker balance (front, back, left, right). While the audio display is still showing, put the car in drive (or reverse to back out and then drive). Once you are underway, press on the "Audio" button. The video will continue to play up front while you are driving. You have to do this each time, but its not that big of a deal. Obviously this is for the front passenger's use, and not intended for the driver.
