There is a cable/solenoid assembly that goes from your shifter assy to the ignition switch. This interlock prevents the shifter from being moved out of the park position unless the brake pedal is depressed. You will have to visit your local dealership to see if it is covered under warranty. Technically, it is not a powertrain issue, which covers engine, transmission and drive axles only.
Chrysler service has informed us that the gear shift module IS covered under our power train life time warranty. Now let's see if they follow through and replace it for free.
Yes, the gear shift module is part of the power train, but it is NOT covered under the power train warranty because it is NOT INTERNAL. It will stay the way it is-apart and manually drivable, by pushing the pink module toward the trunk, to get the car out of park-until Chrysler decides to fix it or we can find how to fix it without using them.
Im late but hope that everyone found that this was a Recall Issue and covered. All you have to do is take your car to a Chrysler Service Tech and they will replace the shifter assay no charge to you.
I had the problem with my mercedes it cost me 50 dollars to fix that problem it a plastic piece it cost about 20 dollars if u no a mechanic that can do th work for u it takes about 10 min to fix that problem
Our 2009 Town & Country had the same problem and they had to replace some shifting module. It was covered it full under warranty.
