Water spilled on the center console and now the trans is stuck in 1st gear. error code states that the shift selector circuit is at fault. anyone open up the assembly and replaced the board (etc) under the shifter? tried reset (batt disconnect) but still no display as to what gear it's in. thanks

Never seen this tried but...

Could you put a dehumidifier in the car for a day or two?

It's the closest I can come to the mobile phone in a packet of rice, but for a car.

Thanks to all who assisted in this repair, big job really. I was able to locate a used shift assembly and finally installed same. Simple plug and play with no coding needed but definitely a long and tedious job. Have to old shifter assembly for sale if someone wants to attempt a repair and access the circuit board

Glad you were able to fix it. You ought to take it apart for fun just to see if you can repair it. Wouldn't hurt to have a spare if it ever happens again.
