Check and see if your brake lights are working when that's happening, if your brake lights are working every time and it's still doing that then more than likely the electric solenoid in the shifter assembly that releases when you hit the brake to take it out of park is faulty and needs to be replaced. Ideally you should use the vcds scan tool from rosstech.com to scan the transmission control module and see if there's a fault in memory for the solenoid.If the brake lights aren't working every time then you need to replace the brake light switch.If I've answered your question to your satisfaction please remember to hit accept as that the only way that the site compensates me for my time.If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask you can ask follow-up questions even after hitting accept.
