Have you done any searches? How do you know it's the gear shift sender? I did a write up for the KRS which is in the archives, I guess yours is similar.

You start with the front plastics off and check out the connector wires on the back of the display. You need volts and a ground to the clock/gearshift display first. If the display is a total blank then that wire(s) is lost.

The display is driven from 3 or 4 wires and they use a simple '1' '0' digital code on the wires to show the correct shift number.

If there are no volts on those wires, changing with the shift, then work back to the gear position sensor switch. There are some wiring connectors around there that may be corroded or damaged to.

Why pay a lot of money to change a shift sensor (not easy access) when the problem could be somewhere else?
