    Hasn't there been a problem with the clip that holds the shift linkage to the trans breaking? Fairly easy to access from underneath, from my understanding, but I couldn't find a thread on it after a quick search.

    First remove shift cable from trans lever, move lever back and forth then into park position,if then reads in Park and can start and move shifter, cable is worn, If no luck, switch on inside of lever in trans is faulty, keep park brake on when doing so
