It may be that the steering shaft lower arm where it connects to the gear selctor cable is rubbing against the crossover harness just above the steering shaft arm. Remove the covers and look at the end of the gear selector under the instrument panel to see if the harness has fallen down and is being abraded by the gear selector shaft arm. If it is, then the repair involves removing the instrument cluster so you can wire tie, not tape like the factory has, the crossover harness to secure it so it is not near the gear selector shaft.
