I know, but when it gets that low I'm used to sitting on the patio furniture waiting for the sun to come up

Maybe try INPA?? Without arguing which is better, sometimes just using a "different" diagnostic platform will help turn on the light bulb for what's going on.

I wish I had it but getting most things here is just as hard as getting a ham sandwich.

Installed new magnetic switch in the valve body and did mechatronics adjustment, plus code reset.

So far 5088 code is gone and the White Witch isn't getting burned at the stake (yet) by the wife....

So, the total cost of 2 each servotronic gearshifts, 1 interlock cable and one mechatronic switch came to....

$733.17 USD and 1 extremely pissed off Asian woman.

Sooooo worth it (imagine the eyeroll as I typed that...)

You're lucky an eyeroll is all you got brochacho.

Congrats on fixing. Always satisfying.

I still have mine and a spare.. (maybe)

You guessed correctly, but 5' tall women who can climb on a countertop are a shitload scarier....
