        Sadly you see a lot of those semi-autos on ebay for spares or repair, because when they go wrong it can get expensive quite quickly.

        A few obvious things to check - first is to make sure the rear lights and brake lights are working! Sounds daft, but a blown rear bulb sometimes knocks the auto transmission into F mode.

        The other checks are:

        A) the crankshaft sensor, the auto transmission ecu has to see the engine turning to work. A common failure on them is the crank sensor which disables the fuel pump relay. If it fails then the engine will crank but not fire and the auto box throws a fault because it can't see the engine turning.

        B) There is an inhibitor switch in the gear selector mechanism which prevent starting in drive. That can stick and cause the same problem.

        However, given that the loom was chewed and it's been rewired my guess is that it's a wiring issue which is impossible to fix over the internet. You're probably going to need a transmission specialist or an auto-electrician. But obviously the car is worth very little so don't go spending too much on it.

              Nothing is 'non-repairable' - Suggest that you get an auto electrician to have a look and ask for a price for doing the work. The decision then has to be made as to whether the car is worth spending the quoted amount of money on.
              If the loom has been correctly fitted, it should be better than having had the old one repaired.
              If you do go looking for an auto electrician, try and find one who has been recommended by someone you trust.

              Regards
