Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The problem you are describing is a fairly common problem and its caused by a failing shift interlock cable or its out of adjustment from the repair that was made on the interlock. Before you consider replacing the cable I would start with trying to adjust it. I have enclosed the steps to adjust it in the link below. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it.
