P0915 Code (Gear Shift Position Circuit Range/Performance)
Hello everyone... new to the forum in search of answers.

I have 2008 with 66,000 miles on it with the following issues:

- 3 Bars flashing

- after doing a reset, I can see the gears shift
- if I get it in D just for a bit the triangle light keeps flashing and eventually goes back to the three bars.

- P0915 Code (Gear Shift Position Circuit Range/Performance) once I ran my OBD connection

Top Reported Fix - Replace clutch actuator Motor M18 w/P0914,P1800

If i play around with the shifter, I can get the car started and on the display I can see P, N, R, D, and 1 once i move the gears. R is some what hard to get into to show on the display.

I've taken apart the clutch actuator and seems to be nothing broken in it but not sure. I've been reading up on this and it's look like a common issue with the actuator but looking on what is the best way to confirm it. Any help would be appreciative.

I took the actuator cover off and can see it functioning. Will see how I can upload a video of it.

Following verified:

- battery fully charged

- brake light switch is engaged.

Thanks in advance for the help!

There was a software upgrade back then for the transmission that you may not have gotten. Unfortunately the dealer is the only place to get it and they will most likely charge for it since it has been so long ago.

Call before upgrade.............
If you call the smartcenter/stealership,and give your car's VIN number,they SHOULD be able to tell if your car
has had the latest software upgrades.....................
