hey there... have always received good info regarding my car and truck (Ram D-100 Custom). My car, a '96 Cirrus Lx ?v6.... Is having some tranny issues... it HAS been taken in for the recall on shifter.... now ...on most mornings the shifter is having a difficult time moving out of PARK... I just keep pushing the button until it goes...sometimes 5...sometimes 15 times.!! Have cleaned the fuse, in the panel, but could probably do that better or replace... IDEAS..???
Inside the mechanism below shifter ( you can hear a click when it engages and lets you move it)...?? The solenoid underneath on the trans...??.. Is a 6G73 Mitsu engine... coupled to a 41TE 4 speed auto.... and it's been a great car, repairs costly though due to front wheel drive design.. ie fuel pump, distributor, pain to change the plugs... Thanks for all your help.....

I think that you can engage the trans without your foot on the brake, should be able to remember.... took like 30-40 tries this morning.... all help appreciated the dealers next...

One recall was to improve the tactile feel of shifting into Park to satisfy the complaints of folks having trouble doing so. It was the nylon button stem that was replaced.
The cable that actuates the shifter Park interlock release goes between the steering column key cylinder and the floor shifter and as long as the cable isn't binding, it can be adjusted.
Later electrical shift interlocks (that may have been another recall) required that your foot was on the brake before releasing the shifter out of Park for added safety. There is a brake switch-actuated solenoid in-line with the cable that 'clicks' when releasing the shifter. That cable is also adjustable.

That would be Recall C45.
