    2008 STS problem with turning off car

    My STS keeps saying no fob and the batteries in the fob were just replaced by the dealership . The doors also don't always open with the fob and the remote start doesn't always work either . When you put the car in park their is a clicking sound in the T-bar and the the cars message center keeps saying to put the car in park even though it is in park . I took it to the dealership and they said they fixed it but it just keeps happening . I also keep getting locked into the car and the alarm goes off when is open the doors to get out . I need this problem fixed .

    Unfortunately, I don't have an answer for you...

    But I can tell you my 2008 STS has the same problem; when I put the car in Park and turn off the engine it asks me to "Shift to Park" -- even though it is in Park.

    I slide it back and shift it into Park again and it turns off.
