Yes but the High and Low have nothing to do with the gearbox or position, that is the motor in the transfer case. That's working as it should, in Low it will always display Lo and the gear you have selected (except your not displaying gears), in High it will display Hi for a few seconds then that goes out and it just displays the gear you are in.

What lights are you saying it doesn't put on in N or D? Reversing lights? If that is the case, as you've already worked out, it puts the reversing lights on when the X line is grounded, irrespective of what state the Y and Z line are in. If X line is grounded and the others are working as they should, P, R, 3 and 2, will display correctly, while D and N won't display anything (hence the select neutral warning when you use the range change) and 1 will display as 2. Are you sure the leds next to the gearlever are all displaying correctly in every gear or only some of them?

the led's always display correctly whatever selected in high and low they never display wrong and nor can gear lever be knocked to make them mis read bud

Check the resistance to ground at pin 8 of C626 then.

im not 100% sure how do i set to resistance then neg probe to earth and pos to pin 8 then select gears and there should only be resistance in r

i put multimeter in 20k and probed the line in park, reverse, 3 and 2 it read 11.45 but in neutral, drive and 1 i got just 1. on screen so all switched closed gears it was grounded and all open it was infinate

That's reading correctly then, 11.45 Ohms when closed but 1. would suggest open (presume your meter reads 1. when the leads are connected to nothing?). That would suggest a problem in the BeCM. Might be worth having a chat with Marty (www.p38webshop.co.uk), he's the BeCM expert.

so the resister would make no difference

No, a pull up resistor won't make any difference. If you've checked all 3 and are getting the correct readings, then it is the BeCM interpreting them incorrectly even though the circuitry to drive the leds next to the gear lever is getting them right. Speak to Marty......

ive spoke to fella that had becm in jan he says he will check tomorrw see if its still on file and if so he will copy it onto another hiline becm and send that out to me and see if it fixes issue also the sunroof was never coded back in so i said i wanted that back in aswell, yeah all open was .1 and all closed between 11.42 and 11.45and all correct to the rave table so that tells me cables and xyz switch is al good, im assuming the plug was ment to be removed and probed in end not done while still plugged into becm

If you probe it while plugged in and find a ground signal there all the time, that will 100% confirm that the ground is within the BeCM.

im almost sure its the becm anyway

Certainly looking that way. Who did you send it to? If you get another one cloned, make sure you note the details from the old one on the label. Sunroof fitted/not fitted is something that a Nanocom can change.

he said when he cloned it there was no sunroof set but 1 i sent used to say sunroof not set because it wouldnt close on 1 side and i told him it had sunroof lol, wish i knew someone closer with nanocom and it was a fella called iain mckee he has a company in wales he is a solid fella and knows his stuff and respected so if it is a becm issue im sure he wouldnt have sent faulty 1 on purpose, i have tapped into becm fore keyless entry and locking and push button starter he asked could that have done it but these issues were there long before i did that

If the sunroof mechanism is broke so it doesn't close properly, a common way of stopping it from constantly saying Sunroof Not Set is to tell the BeCM that the sunroof isn't fitted, then it doesn't check to see if it is set or not. That's the same bloke that does the dodgy aftermarket keys. There's two people I would trust to work on a BeCM and he isn't one of them.....

How close is closer, there's quite a few people with a Nanocom scattered around the country.

He did program me another key but also fixed my original and with pke I use none of them lol, I would like the sunroof fixed so I'm wanting it back in becm

Who is the people you trust to work on BECM buddy because I'm getting run around or ignored now

Marty (www.p38webshop.co.uk) but he is about to go to New Zealand for work so won't be around from next week onwards or Callrova (https://callrova.com/range-rover-p38/) in Brighton.
