Yes, but another member here assembled the wiring as per your DIY. I am 100% sure there was a slight problem with one of the connectors causing exactly what Reggie says. Gently "touch" of the cables near the connector solved it for me. Sorry, I can't explain it better, english is not my mother tongue.

Here's what I'd do.... open the center console while you see both R/N lightning up. Start with the connectors and move around the cables on each connector. You'll eventually see when you get to the one causing it.

One thing I could say for sure for my case, the connector was near the knob hardware, the actual hardware that moves the gears and it was touching the connector while changing gears. I had to move it away from it, so it not on the way.
