Thank you. $1400 to replace the shifter is about right but maybe a little high. The shifter retails for $715 and takes about 4 hours to install. Depending on their labor rate the repair would run about $1150 - $1400. It is very important that the technician checked the signals to the shifter when the shifter could not be moved. He need to make sure that he was getting a signal from the brake switch and that there were no fault codes that would indicate some other problem.

Let me know if you have any questions.
