Welcome to the forums. Is the battery good and fully charged? A weak or bad battery can cause shifting problems.

When you turn the key on, does the gear position indicator flash? If so, count the flashes, it's indicating a trouble code.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

If the display doesn't work, the only thing I know to do is to check each individual component in the electric shift system. The angle sensor is a common problem and might be a good place to start. You can download the service manual that will show you how to test the components at the link below.
