This just started today. I have 144k mi. and when I get to my location I put the car in park and turn the ignition so that the engine is off. The "P" is lit on the dash, but yet can't pull out key. I tried the old turn the steering wheel trick, but the steering wheel isn't locked. I noticed that when I turned the car back on to put it back into drive, I can't pull the shift back to "D". It's stuck. Somehow, eventually, pushing the release a couple of times (hearing it click the whole time) and yanking real hard on the shift I am able to put it into drive and reset it into park and get the key out.
I just tried to recreate the issue, but was unsuccessful.
Do I need a new Solenoid?
