Default Rubicon ECU code 11 & will not reinitialize

First time poster after reading many threads

07 rubicon I am working on for a friend. its been treated fairly rough and in some deep water im sure.

display flashes d1d2 11 times so the error is "ECM control motor circuit"

so I pulled off the shift motor and cleaned it as described in this thread
Honda Rubicon Shift Problems

After putting it back together I put 12V to the motor and it did spin so the motor works.

Next i tried to move the gear in the transmission and it was locked up. I used a flathead and was finally able to get the gear to move in one direction (counterclockwise) It took a lot more force than i thought to break it free, but it did. Then it acted like it would spin counterclockwise as much as I wanted but if i turned it clockwise it would hit a stop point as soon as I spun it as many turns back clockwise. So I spun it about 5 times counterclockwise and put the motor back on. (the flathead technique was in some thread I cant find now, but came out of the honda manual saying this gear can get "stuck")

Also the 30 amp fuse was blown, I assume that is because the gear was locked thus the motor couldnt turn and blew the fuse. New fuse in now.

Now I am trying to follow the procedure to reinitialize and I cant make it work just right. I am following instructions per this thread
ecm-initialization

I get all the way to the last part when it is supposed to show "N" but all mine does is start to flash "--" and never goes to "N"

after I turn it off and back on the 11 d1d2 blinks are back. I also can not feel the shift motor do anything when i turn the key on.

Anyone have any tips on what I can do? Hate to buy a new ECU without being totally sure that is the problem (and without knowing if the trans is still ok)

Thanks in advance, Im out in the garage watching this thread.

Welcome to the forum. Does the control motor cycle when your doing the initialization process? Run one way and then back the other.

I cannot hear or feel it do anything.

It is bolted on right now. Another thread said if it was unbolted then it would show an error. (I tried to leave it unbolted and watch it but it did nothing)

When I gave it 12V from my battery charger it did spin, but rather slowly, it did have some decent torque though.
