Hi im Trey this is my first time to the sight. My 08 broke the worm gear or spiral gear in the clutch actuator. I got it towed home checked out the old one need to be replaced. I bought a new one installed it and I am having this problem. When you turn the ignition to position 1, it show P then 3 dashes. I tried to get it to relearn or rethink but I am unable to figure it out. Any suggestion will greatly be helpful.

I am guessing mine has the same problem with the broken gear, just avoiding crawling under there to get the bad news.
