No gear indicator CVT

Hello everyone,
I have a 05 MC CVT. I am having an issue with my gear indicator. When I start the car it wont show "P" (park). Same thing happens with Reverse and N. But when I go to drive it shows "D" like it should also if I move the lever over it shows "SD".

Some times it will show all gears and sometime not and when it does not show PRN then when I put into drive it slams hard. I do no that the previous owner dropped coffee on the gear lever. So I cleaned it well but still the same.

I think its the Trans shift selector switch (but that's not what it is called)? PRNDL switch
Thank you

Ok just incase anyone has this is. It was due to Coffee or Soda that spelled in the cup holder area and leaks down on the PRNDL input and fries it.
you can get this part from MINIMANIA for $80.00 or got to the dealer and pay $760.00 for the entire shifter assembly
