The shift lever may not move out of park. Our technicians tell us that updating the electronic shifter module (ESM) may be necessary to correct this concern.

Second time this happen.Had a hard time shifting from park to drive.The dealer said that some one spilled
a drink over the shifter and shorted the electronics connected to the shifter.this is the second time this was fixed. This is a poor design. You could be in the rain,get in the truck and some how get the shifter wet.
Again bad design.People should complain so their can be a recall.
The shifter has to be replace again.
what a piece of junk.
This van cost too much to fix, i spent 3000 dollars on this van.
Keeping driving waiting green light get on at the time I gave gas the truck stopped , didn't get a move . After that I turned off the truck , made a call for emergency help . I turned on the truck and shifter couldn't move , shifter lever stuck in park position .
In the screen showed (abs) , esp and and a sign like a tyre . After 30 min during talking on the phone for towing help I turned off and after that on the truck . Fortunately for the moment didn't show the problem , but after some miles showed again . In park position shifter stuck . The only way to keep driving after turning on the truck move shifter fast before doors get closed automatically .
