Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. When you say you are having difficulty shifting do you mean that the shifter will not come out of park?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The on the column automatic shifter was stuck in park. Depressing the brake did not release it to shift. I got under the dash and played with the solenoid with a black wire and green/ white wire. The solenoid did not move at first but now did move. After many attemptsat shifting, I was able to get into Drive1, but now am stuck there. The shifter moves but is still stuck in Drive 1.
