It started working again last night and went out again I'll start with checking fluid

Could it be the lead frame causing it not to light up reverse it shows P N D but not R M 2 1 very weird for it to start working then stop working

Ya the battery light came on at one point I knew it had a hot battery to me it seems something to with wiring

I put a brand new battery about a month ago I scanned it gave me p0705 code
