problem #1

Jul 262007

Charger 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,000 miles
My center console shifter of my 2006 Dodge Charger rt, has a malfunction. It will not let me out of park. When I try to release it with the manual override button, it will not release either. Also when the vehicle is turned off and the car is still in gear, it will not allow the vehicle to go into park. This poses a larger problem if there is an accident and that part breaks.
