'05 A4, need advice on shifter problem, electical? =(

A couple weeks ago the 12v outlet in my center console stopped working, and the back light for the "P R N D 3 2 1" went out, i'm pretty sure the button you push in to shift to drive feels a bit different "spongy" I guess would describe it. The light in the center console still works and the T/C light near the "P R N D 3 2 1" still works. I checked the interior fuses and all were good.

Also when i was backing into my parking spot the other day when i shifted from reverse to park my speedometer jumped suddenly to 100mph even though i was stopped. it tripped my overspeed alarm.

I was really hoping someone could give me some advice, maybe a wire came loose somewhere under the center console?

I'm low on funds and my dealer loves to attempt to screw me out of every penny they can.

Any help, input, or advice would be greatly appreciated. I love my goat and have really tried to baby her, i drive like an old man and only very occasionally open her up on the highway. thanks again

Update , using the directions stickied above i took the center console apart, unplugged and replugged all the harnesses, and checked for anything loose. all seems ok now, not sure where the short/loose wire was but as long as it all works i'm happy =)
