my 2001 accent won't shift into 3rd gear or OD . I replaced the transmission control modual and it shifted fine for a while and then it happened again, so I replaced it again. same thing, it worked fine for a short time and now shifts into 1st and 2nd but not 3rd or OD. Any answers?

Welcome, is your car automatic or manual?

Take the console apart to expose the shifter assembly...there will be 2 or 3 wires coming down the shifter tube and out the bottom, usually 1 of them wires is broken.

Lightly pull on each wire and you should find the broken one.

2 choices: repair wire or replace the switch-wire assembly.

The connector in the diagram is under the floor console next to the shifter lever assembly.

There will be a wiring loom with 3 wires coming out the bottom of the shifter lever.

The wires in that loom route from the O/D switch to the 3 terminals of the connector.
