'02 stuck in park
Seems I am experiencing the same problem with my '02 DD since relocating to Iowa. It only happens in the winter and after the vehicle runs and warms up for a long period of time, it will eventually shift into gear. While waiting for this to happen yesterday morning, I removed the rubber boot at the base of the shift arm and found the shift lock. I pressed it in and I was able to shift. Now, I just have to find out what is causing it to stick.
My first suspect was the solenoid (sp?) that engages when the brake is depressed. I can hear the click but the shift locking mechanism does not always disengage.
Like I said before, it only happens only when it is cold (less than 15 degrees).
