When I grab the selector lever to change from Parking (P) to Drive (D) or Reverse (R), is really hard to move it down it kinda gets stuck. Then when I move it up to the Parking (P) to park is still hard and the light where it tells me on what letter I have it dissapears, if I let the brake go the van goes back and the light comes back on but on Reverse (R) not where I put it on (P). I have to move the selector lever up and down in order to let it stay on (P) with the light on and not on reverse. If I keep doing that am I messing up something on the van, like the transmission or something? How can I fix it? Thank you

Transmission/transaxle is equipped with a electronically controlled shift lock and key lock system. See Fig. 1 . Shift lock system prevents shift lever from being moved from Park unless brake pedal is depressed. In case of a malfunction, shift lever can be released by depressing shift lock override button, located near shift lever. Key lock system prevents ignition key from being moved from ACC to LOCK position on ignition switch unless shift lever is in Park.
System consists of brakelight switch, key interlock solenoid, shift lock control switch, shift lock control Electronic Control Unit (ECU), shift lock solenoid and shift lock release button. All models may not be equipped with all components. See Fig. 1 .

Ensure shift lock cable does not interfere with wiring harness. Ensure ignition switch turns to LOCK position when shift lever is in "P" position. Ensure brake pedal returns fully. Ensure shift lock is released when brake pedal is depressed with ignition switch at ACC, ON or START position.

Place shift lever in "P" position. Turn ignition switch to LOCK position. Loosen 2 bolts and ensure pedal button touches pedal plate cushion. Tighten 2 bolts to 97 INCH lbs. (11 N.m)
