#08-07-30-007B: EI08045 - Key Cannot Be Removed from Ignition with Gear Selector in Park, Shifter Cannot Be Moved from Park Position (Repair/Reroute Brake Transmission Shift Interlock (BTSI) Solenoid Harness) - (Jun 8, 2009)
This bulletin is being revised to end the need for information from the field and provide repair information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 08-07-30-007A (Section 07 - Transmission/Transaxle).
Some customers may comment on either of the following conditions:
The key cannot be removed from the ignition.
The transmission gear selector (shifter) cannot be moved out of the PARK position.
This condition may be caused by an incorrectly routed brake transmission shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid harness which can make it difficult to install. In some instances, the wiring looms are tangled, causing stress on the wires in the connector at the BTSI. If the BTSI harness is routed incorrectly, it may also result in a wire pinching issue.
Important: DO NOT use force to move the gear selector (shifter). Using force may cause damage to the BTSI.
For vehicles repaired under warranty, use:
