    Shifting out of park issue

    I am new to this great forum and posted my first question this morning. I got some very well intended, educated answers so I thought that I would post this next question to all of you as well.

    Shortly after purchasing this 2005 Deville the interlock that allowed to shift out of park failed. Once I found out how much the part was I found a piece of tin and drilled holes into the corners of the piece of tin. Next I found a way to wire tie the tin to a piece of the mechanism that blocked the interlock from entering into the locked position.

    Is this how everyone dealt with this issue or was there some other way of handling it.

    For the record, the only other issues we have had since we purchased this a few years ago was the passenger window track I replaced, and the tires slowly leak. I had them scraped and brushed clean which worked for about 6 months and then they started to leak again. The leak worsens in the cold winter months but I have a compressor so not really a big deal.

    A used Interlock can't be much more than 20.
    As for the rim leaks they can apply a sealant when they mount the tires.

    I think the DTS has an orange manual release button under the rubber pad in the cubby hole in front of the shifter.

    I never connected it when I installed the DTS console in my DHS.
