1993 Buick LeSabre won't shift out of park when cold

\015 I have a 1993 Buick LeSabre, that when cold it will not shift out of park, however, if you turn the key off and back on a couple of times it is fine and shifts right into gear. There is no slippage when driving the car. Car drives and shifts fine. The only problem noticed is the one mentioned.\012\012The only other problem I have with the car is on the push button control panel. It like freezes up at times and you cannot get anything to work. Works great at times, freezes up, then on it's own will straighten out after driving the car for a while.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018
