Hi there, P0705 - "Transmission range sensor circuit malfunction". Can't help with that BUT, every time I have had "HDC unavailable" it has been due to low voltage battery. A decent charge with a good charger has always sorted that.
Hope this helps Thumbs Up

checking on the history of the car
after going to the main stealers for my records i found that the mechanics charged the company for a new gearbox (the car was under warranty) but actually they had tie-wrapped the gear selector cable
So some mechanics were a gearbox richer Shocked ! " its Africa I know"


i decide the main stealer wont do my car lest i be minus another gearbox for real this time.


afew cable ties did the trick until i buy the gear selector cable Thumbs Up
