Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. Can you hear the shifter making a clicking noise when you apply the brakes? Do the brake lights work?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
NO CLICKING NOISE, THE BRAKE LIGHTS WORK I THINK IT IS THE SHIFTERS SOLENOID SWITCH.
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 1 year ago.
If the brake lights are working most of the time this is a problem with the shift lock solenoid in the shifter assembly. It is possible that something is stuck in there also keeping it jammed. Double check to see if anything is in there. If not then you will need to take the shifter apart. Do you plan on doing this yourself?
