Q: I keep having trouble with my shifter button sticking. on 2004 Isuzu Axiom

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
sometimes it will engage, other times I have to jiggle the shifter while trying to press in the button. When I finally do get it into gear my TOD light starts flashing, but not always & it will shut off usually by turning off the car and restarting it. HELP!!!

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE SHIFTER ASSEMBLY WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED. I HAVE A FEELING SOMETHING STICKY HAS GOTTEN INTO BUTTON AREA CAUSING IT TO SHORT OUT OR STICK.
The other answer is correct. You'll notice a lot of play side to side. We get ours out of neutral by pressing the button and wiggling the shift lever left and right while gently pulling it backward. NEVER try to force the lever by yanking it hard. Gentle is the key.
