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.

Placed vehicle in park while running. Could not get it out of park. Had to manually overide using a pencil to get it out of park. Will now lock every time it is in park. Needs to be released manually
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.
