Customer Question
2015 genesis gear shift...

2015 genesis gear shift locked in park

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you noticed any leaking?

Car is 2 years old - worked fine yesterday -

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Genesis yourself? What have you tried so far?

There is a release button that we have pushed down - as long as its pushed down, gear shift comes out of park but car does not start in neutral

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

We just want the darn thing unlocked
