    2008 esp/bas light shifting problems

    So my retired trooper car will not shift out of park at certain times.
    Dealership said they think it is the steering column. $5000 to replace.
    Options?

    Look up the pink piece that goes in shifter. I'd never go back to that dealer again.

    Does it have a floor shifter or column shifter?

    Column. Can the column be disconnected and it be switched to the floor?

    You'd probably need a parts car such as from a pick and pull to get all the parts needed to switch the shifter.

    I wouldn't believe the dealer. I would check other things such as the brake switch first. Perhaps the linkage is loose somewhere?

    I have changed the brake switch twice and 3of4 of the wheel speed sensors. Linkage feels tight. Out of the dash anyway. I am hoping someone else may have switched out the column for a floor shifter on one of these.

    What device locks the shifter in Park? Can it just be removed?
