Dear customer, I would like to know more exactly which connectors are disconnected and what is the problem you have to connect it, it would be good to have a picture or some videos that you can attach to the platform or you can use the YouTube platform and share the link with me

Hi did you see the picture?
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 16 days ago.

Dear customer, what you see in the pictures is the connector of the selector that is down there, but I see it well connected, so perhaps it may be the plastic part that covers the selector where the hooks are that you cannot lower it completely and therefore you cannot completely close this part.

To do this you have to start the vehicle, put in drive, and take down all its cover to its place, then you put in stop again and turn off and that's it.

If you have any conflict please let me know.
