Now however, yesterday after arriving to a destination, I turned the car off, put it in Park and tired to remove the key. The key would not come out of the ignition. It is stuck at the "POS 1" and will not move back to the "LOCK" position and come out. I read a little and some are saying that it may be tied to a switch in the console as well. Here is some other data for you to have:
I can move the gear shift from Park-to-Reverse-to-Neutral-Drive without pushing in the button at the top of the gear shift. I do not know if that is normal or not in this condition.
In all positions, but Park, the button on top of the gear shift is "springy" and has resistance when I push it in. However, when in the Park position, the button does not have any resistance until about 90% of the way depressed, then a little resistance is felt.
Hope this helps you with the diagnosis. If it is something in the console, can you please:
- let me know which part to check/replace,
- maybe how to test it
- provide me info on how to remove the parts I need to remove to get to the part that is in probably failure or needs adjustment.
Thanks a bunch!
have the same problem?
