I have located the bypass and it will release so it cold have been driven unfortunately the dealer neglected to tell me that so I had to have I towed to his shop where he replaced the shifter for a the sum of $596.00

ouch That was not nice ,besides if they replaced the whole shiftier that was a grab too because all you probably needed was the shift lock solenoid for under $100 I bet you didn't ask to see the part and have them explain why they replaced the complete shiftier did you? So I assume every thing is ok now?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The shifter was replaced because the plastic ignition interlock arm was broken. The arm is plastic and spring loaded, under constant tension against the interlock cable. The small hook where the spring connects to the arm will break and prevent moving the shifter from park because it doesn't think the ignition is in the run position.
