Just a quick bump and reminder. It's Summer time, with the added heat temp sensors are more likely to fail. I've had 2 pm's this week presenting symptoms of a bad hydraulic temp sensor. If your car...

I found a hell of a deal. I got an 06, barely modded, with about 42k on the clock. I will warn you though, upgrades are inexpensive and very effective, it gets addicting. All of my spare parts go...

The STi I am pretty sure would embarrass the M3 in any category except looks and top speed. I just finished a turbo upgrade and water methanol injection. I am a big fan of the ECU in Subarus, there's...

Not yet, the guy is coming to make the swap tomorrow. From looking around on the web this should be a step up in reliability and maintenance costs over the M3 SMG that I had. I can say for sure it...

You can check the plugs for the gear position sensor, they are on the passenger side of the transmission and can get wet and stuff. Most likely the sensor is bad, but it never hurts to check, clean...

Replace the salmon relay and report back. That will typically keep the pump from priming if it goes bad.

What codes (if any) did it throw? Not shifting is usually because of a hood or door sensor. Go through the steps in the original post and report back, be as detailed as possible.
Thanks

One thing that can cause this issue is the brake pedal sensor. If it doesn't sense the pedal being pressed, it wont shift to N, and will not start.
