Do a web search on the part number. You can get an EBTCM for $300 if you try.

The connector may be a tougher challenge. Your best bet there might be to get a wiring harness from a salvage yard. The only challenge would be to get them to ship to Mexico.

yes that is the problem does anyone know of a autoparts store that reliably ships to mexico? now surely their are enough people with similar problems over the years and SOMEONE has figured out how to RE-ENABLE 1ST GEAR that is really the only thing that is causing problems while i wait to find and get my replacement ebtcm.thanks i hope someone has a solution for the no 1st gear?

I have no solution for the no 1st gear...

I haven't heard of anyone being able to bypass the 1st gear lockout... sorry...

Have you CALLED RockAuto to see if they ship to Mexico???

They have your part... call 'em and see if they ship to Cancun...
