: Shift to Park

09-01-12, 07:10 PM
Have been having issues for several months now. When putting my 2008 STS into Park and shutting it off, it starts dinging and tells me to shift it into park even though it says it is in park. I try a combination of wiggling the shifter, stepping on the brake or restarting it and pushing it harder into park. I never know which is going to work. I've had to leave the car dinging away while running in somewhere for errands because I could not get it to stop. My husband had it on the hoist and messed with the linkage but no luck. Does anyone have any suggestions?

It's a sensor inside the integrated shifter assembly. 'Integrated' meaning the dealer will replace the entire unit.
