Makes sense. Also, look up under the dash, on the "arm" that the brake pedal is mounted on. There should be several switches up there (one of which is probably the shift lock control). Make sure that when you press the pedal down, any switch being pressed by this action is pressed straight and completely. If one of them is out of alignment, it could mean the car can't tell that you're pressing the brake down, and therefore won't let the car out of gear (or won't realize it's in park and will lock the key in the ignition).

Manual says Shift Lock Release issue may be due to low voltage battery, less than 9V. The Shift Lock Release problem started shortly before the Malfunction Indicator Lamp problem began. Could low voltage battery be related to the Malfunction Indicator Lamp lighting up steady? If the voltage being low is the cause of the Shift Lock Release problem, how can you tell which, the alternator, belt, or the battery, needs to be replaced or serviced? If the Emissions Controls needs to be replaced, how mu

95 suburban with 4l60e and manual transfer case. shifts rather high in 2wd but livable. when in 4wd high it shifts into 4th and torque converter goes into lock up mode. shifting to third gets it moving again but shifting to od immediately locks the converter again. does the transfer case gear selection interact with the computer control of the transmission or is there a wiring problem?

My 2009 Sonata cruise control causes the transmission to shift down on every minor grade. Causes me very poor fuel mileage and has to shorten transmission life. Shifts 1 or more times in most every mile.I read on a forum that you can lock the shifter into overdrive which does help but then the torque converter shifts in and out of lock-up all the time. I don't know if this hurts the torque converter but it still lowers fuel mileage. No help from Hyundai, they say this is normal on 2009 and newer
