Hi loyd119,

Thank you for the donation.

There are 2 solenoids under the center console and one of them is not working.

I would suspect the Park Lock solenoid as the brake induces a clicking noise which should be from the BTSI solenoid. However you would need to check if the solenoid is moving sufficiently to release the lock.
