Souunds like we may have a problem with that shifter assembly. Try disconnecting the negative battery terminal cable for about an hoiur. The battery is in the trunk so make sure you don't close the trunk with the battery disconnected.Reconnect it and see if the problem has been temporarily resolved.Let me know.
