Did you do a transmission teach-in by placing the key in #1 position, (KOEO) foot on the brake pedal & slowly move the gear selector to R, N, D, & slowly back to Park. You should hear some clicking from the transmission and hopefully this will get you back on the road.

…from your statement…”and grease it” I will think you’re talking about the clutch actuator since there’s nothing to grease in the shift actuator…

…did you mark the location of the clutch actuator base in relation to the case??
…indexing it allows you to reinstall it in the original position to maintain the pushrod preload…

Remove the neg terminal from the battery and leave disconnected for an hour, replace, start the engine and go through the gears from reverse up and back to reverse, switch off, leave for a moment and start the car. This has worked for me. It give the control unit time to completely discharge all of the stored energy in the capacitors.
