HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Ok, for clarification, do you mean that the shifter will not move out of park, or that the shifter will go into reverse or drive but that your vehicle will not move when placed in gear.

And I will need the last 8 of the vin number to pull up any needed schematics.
