HI there! Can you check and see if the brake lights work when you step on the brakes?
Better yet, does your cruise control work?
yes to both
both are working
Ok, Can you check a fuse for me? Fuse # XXXXX inside the car my be a factor. Check it out and let me know! If it is blown replace it.
the key for the fuses does not have a #21. The fuses you wanted my to check are under the stearing colum right
Yes, let me see if I can get you a diagram of the box. Mine are only numbers! One moment please
Ok, here is a diagram of the fuse box. I highlighted # XXXXX hopefully we will find this blown and it will resolve the problem.
yors are not matching to mine. that is a blank spot
Ok, from what I can see the one next to it should be blank
So you should show 2 blanks there?
maybe you could tell me what the fuse is for like the fr power socket, or mirror and audio, RR power socket
My diagram says it is for the key switch and lock solenoid
It also supplies power to the shift lock control module
if it the one when i turn the key upside down to match yours it says its the bat saver
Well, it probably isn't blown but go ahead and check it. Also, like I said, if you have to empties then it should have a fuse in it
no it not brown
Ok, Do you hear a clicking when you step on the brake pedal?
Have you spilled any drink on the shifter area by mistake?
no noise no I have not spilled that i can recall,
ok, there are several things that can be happening here. It could be the control module itself, the shifter cable may be out of adjustment or possibly one of the switches on the shifter itself.
It is hard to put a price tag on this without diagnosing it first.
I can give you a ball park of about $100- $300 depending on what is found
This type of testing is going to require some time with a voltmeter and test light, as well as some minor disassembly of the car
Is there anything I can do so I dont have to use the screwdriver to shift
At this time there is not. It will have to be diagnosed,until then you will have to use the over ride for getting it out of park
I suspect a problem with the shift lock module, but you have to test the wiring going in and out to determine if that is the cause
I am sorry,but it is really what it is.
you are very welcome! Was hoping for a fuse to be honest with you :)
