Hello I need some help, I went over the railroad tracks and then indicator lights started coming on, I pulled into parking lot and put it in park. I could not get the shifter to move into gear, so I unhooked the battery and when I hooked it back up now I get the three lines of death and cannot get the transmission to learn the gears. It will not start until I program the shifter. I checked the fuses and my battery is fully charged please help!

If you get the three bars have you actually re tough the transmission? Just get in the car shifter in park. put your foot on the brake, put key in and turn to on possession. Do not turn the key to the starter position and if you do turn key off wait a few minutes and start again. Ok so in park keep foot on break whole time, turn key to on position dash will light up three bars will flash just sit there brake pressed and do nothing for a few minutes. You should hear some clicking under the car which is the actuators going through the gears. After a few minutes the three bars should return to "P" and then you should be able to start the car like normal. Hope that helps.
