Here is the wire diagram. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9vu2djtsx1xyrjz/shiftlock.pdf?dl=0

Can you access the shift lock and verify power on the yellow wire. Then with the key on and brake pressed see if the BCM is grounding gray wire. If it is then the shift lock solenoid is faulty.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5 star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
