Hello, with the concern and warning message you have. Your issue is with the shifter not seeing the vehicle is in park even though it is. The solution is to replace the gear shifter assembly.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I had that replaced just last year so I don't think that is the problem because when that was happening it said please shift to park. That is ok thanks for your time I will take it back to where I bought it
Expert:  James replied 1 year ago.
I still think it's the same. The warning is for vehicle safety. The only way to find out what code is being set when this happens is to,test for codes in the instrument cluster.
