At times I can not get my car out of park. The button won't push in to get it out of park and I have to play with it for awhile to get it into drive or reverse. Help!

Do you
have the same problem?

When this happens, are the brake lights working?

The brake light switch sends power to the park lock solenoid. If the switch is out of adjustment or if it's bad, it may not send the power to the park lock solenoid which inturn, doesn't allow the vehicle to come out of park.

When it happens, check that and let me know what you find.
