Ok so i picked a mint EL the other day for a few hundred, only thing wrong with it is that it wont start in Park. i have to put it in N and push up for it to start.

also if i put into 1 and then back to D it only goes to 3rd i have to go N then back to D for it to pick it up.

also a light is on the dash all the time not sure what it means,

any help thanks

yeah i know weee the selector shaft goes iv changed a gear box in one before. the light that is on i dont think is the handbrake as that is below it with a P also the car seems dead at around 2000rpm really does not want to push past it. and the distance to empty wont leave 0km even tho i have put plenty of fuel in. the guage moves just the dte does not change

The {(!)} Light is the brake failure light. Might want to look into that lol. {(P)} is park brake.
