My 1994 Fleetwood Brougham has a brake-transmission shift interlock which requires you to depress the regular brake before you can shift from "P". The problem I have had, and am having more frequently is that depressing the brake doesn't release the shift. When its working I can hear what sounds like a solenoid switch in the steering column click and the message on the dash goes out. So far it has started working if I fool with it a while (turn off engine, etc.), but I am afraid it will become permanent and I will be stuck out somewhere. I would like to disable this feature or at least have some way to correct it when it happens. Help please!
