Nobody mentioned the DRB; I said a competent OBD2 reader and read live data.

Ah.

But yah, it's not in ANY gear save park or not-park if the motor isn't running; all not-park are equal to neutral due to no hydraulic fluid being pumped around.

Yes, yes, and yes.

Two things for jlcramer64 ..

1) Hydraulic since 1987 on the clutch.
