I have been a professional master mechanic for over 35 years and am happy to help you with this.

A lot of times if you disconnect both battery cables and touch them together for 15 seconds it will reset the computer and work. Give that a try. If that doesnt work it will need to go into a shop for repairs because it can get real involved, Just being honest with you because nobody really likes taking it to a shop...


My goal is that you are satisfied with my answer(s). I strive for a 5 star positive rating. It's the only way i get credit. You can still ask me questions for free after the rating.

I touch both cables for 15 sec it should reset ? ok thank you for your advice do you think a coin or something might be in the shift box area for this to happen
Expert:  Virtual Wrench replied 1 year ago.

Yes on the cables.

Usually if there is something in there obstructing the shifter, it wont even go into park..
