This is a nightmare when it happens. You get home, or worse, you get to your office, and you put your car in park. The dashboard shows that your car is in drive, even though you know it is in park. It’s a major problem because the mechanical part of the car is always correct here, but the computer thinks otherwise. Well, let’s be clear, it is not completely that the mechanical part of the car is correct. The shifter and gear is in the right place, but the interpretation by the car’s “brain” is not.
The issue here is a bad shifter assembly. It is something that should be addressed as an emergency, and you should call us right away. The problem is that the computer and the mechanical parts of the car could “work together” and put you in neutral, and your car would roll away. Make sure you get us to tow you in if you see this problem. it could save your life!
