My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
This is a common fault with the shifter itself.I have had to replace it several times before in the past for this issue here.This is usually checked with a dealers sds machine to observe data from the shifter itself but I suspect yours will need replaced.
Thanks Pete
