On the 200q20v, there's no wiring anywhere near the shifter.
But- while in the engine compartment messing with the shifter near
the transmission, it could be possible to bump the connections for
the booster pressure sensor, the reservoir connector, etc. I agree
with Huw, this sounds less like a hydraulic system problem and more
and more like a bumped connector.
