    My turn, will have to look into the cheap repair. I have the dielectric grease so hopefully that will solve my shifting problems.

    I have the same problem with the stuck key and glad there are others here that know the fix. I too was wondering which of the wires to cut from the ignition? I removed the cover and can see 2 sets of 2 wires underneath the ignition switch. One set looks to be red/white for both, the other pair is blue/white and green/yellow(?).

    Thank You for all the help with this issue, i was carrying 2 keys with me as well for 2 years.

    It took me an hour to fix the problem.

    This as a great fix to the automatic shifter problem! Just make sure to clean the plastic pieces and copper pieces throughly and use the dielectric grease to re-grease the moving parts. These pieces were sticky and grimy on mine and now are working much better. Thanks for the info G2ic!

    i found this problem.. it us due to the grease used to lube a spring getting sticky!!!!!!! take the console apart and remove the switch on the passenger side and disassembale it.. there is a little plastic sliding piece inside of there that has two metal pices in it... the smaller one has a spring behind it that has some sticky grease, i took it apart and thurouly cleaned it with dawn dish soap, the spring, metal connector, and the plastic piece.. i did that about a month ago and havent had a single problem since!!!

    Same issue here, besides the little P light not turning on and the key stuck on the ignition. I also have noticed a little noise /chrip /sound coming from underneath the car. It usually does it only when the car is cold & when I engage D for the first time of the day. It goes away after 10MPH
