Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. The cable for the PRNDL just needs to be adjusted. Do this:

. Place shifter in Park position. If indicator needs adjusting, turn thumb screw on cable retainer (on steering column) to adjust cable until the line is in the correct spot. Let me know if this helps,

Chris
