2007-2011 Automatic Shifter

Hey everyone, I'm kind of new to the car thing, so I was wondering if you could help me.

I have an '09 hatchback and want to put in a custom shifter. The problem I'm facing is the wires in the handle that control the overdrive, and I can't find a post-production shifter handle/knob that works with this, and the stick won't move without them.

My question is, is (a) whether there is a post-prod shifter that will work with these wires, and (b) if there is a way to bypass them so the sifter moves without the connection.

Thanks a million!

Merci,

MAYNARD

Yeah, and those would work great, it's just when you remove the factory knob (I'm sure you're aware) and maybe try to push the white thing down to move it, it's locked - it's because of the two brass-colored wires that are wrapped around the handle. (click the link below). The stick won't move without them connected, so I was wondering how I might get around it, or if I can just take wire and connect them or whatever.

The problem is that they are connected to the O/D button. Will overdrive stay off all the time or what?

Maybe this clarifies the question, but I truly thank you for the quick reply.

Video featuring wires. Look for the brass wires wrapped around handle. https://youtu.be/u32wlEk2lLk?t=2m16strue

Merci,

Jesus Christ that thing is huge. Uses the same clip as the window cranks to secure it too.

Well, he has it in neutral and shifter removed. It should slip backwards into drive and that should tell him if those contacts mean anything or gives any error messages. At the least it should start up and he could shift it to drive in a parking place with brakes on then pull the handle off to see if any DTC are generated.
