There are two different ones depending on the transmission. The AX4S uses a 8 pin one and the AX4N uses a 12 pin one. Connectors are different so you should not be able to plug it in to the wrong one.

Otherwise it would be alignment.


Shift Control Linkage

The transmission shift linkage adjustments must be performed in the order in which they appear.


Column Shift

1. Place transaxle range selector lever in (D) (OVERDRIVE) position or D (DRIVE) position on vehicles equipped with a transmission control switch (TCS). A weight of 1.4 kg (3 lb) should be hung on the transaxle range selector lever to ensure the lever is located firmly on the (D) (OVERDRIVE) or D (DRIVE) position on vehicles equipped with a transmission control switch (TCS) detent.

2. Loosen manual control lever-to-control cable retaining nut.

3. Move transaxle manual control lever to OVERDRIVE position or D (DRIVE) position on vehicles equipped with a transmission control switch (TCS), second detent from most rearward position.

4. Tighten retaining nut to 17-23 Nm (13-17 lb-ft). Check operation of transaxle in each transmission range position. Make sure that park mechanism and transmission range (TR) sensor are functioning properly.


Floor Shift

1. Position transaxle range selector lever in DRIVE position against rearward stop. The floor transaxle range selector lever must be held in the rearward position using a constant force of 1.4 kg (3 lb) while linkage is being adjusted.

2. Loosen manual control lever-to-control cable retaining nut.

3. Move transaxle manual control lever to DRIVE position, second detent from most rearward position.

4. Tighten retaining nut to 17-23 Nm (13-17 lb-ft).

5. Check operation of transaxle in each transmission range position. Make sure that park mechanism and transmission range (TR) sensor are functioning properly.
