Hello, welcome. My name isXXXXX will do my very best to assist you with your question. I apologize if you have been waiting long for a response.


From what you are describing the issue that you are having is consistent with a failed or failing shift selector switch which is common to fail on these vehicles and result in this problem. To correct the issue the switch will need to be replaced.
