When I am in park and try to shift to drive it does not engage. If I shift to reverse or third it will move then I can slip into drive. I have no issues while driving seems to switch gears fine. Only issue is after being in park. Yesterday was the worse was tight against the curb and couldn't get out of park. Never had that problem before either. Only issue is going from PARK to DRIVE.
Do you
have the same problem?

It sounds like your shift interlock is not releasing. Check fuses 8 20 and 22. The shift interlock is under your center console so have a pro check to see if it's getting power or not. It may not be getting it all the time. Or it's not getting a signal from brake. There might be a button by shifter that you can push to put it out of park otherwise it will need the console pulled out of the way to try to unlock it.
