Hi folks, today I spoke with my dealership about issue with the Shifter at park. I received a
Message that said “put the car at park”. This happened a few times since a month. So dealer was no surprise and said that is a common issue with a few GM’s model, so park sensor will need to be replaced!!

Sorry message is in French on my car. Mileage is only 22k miles (36k km)

You probably got every single problem that exist on that car.
Yep! unfortunately !!! Hope that all “issues” will show up before end of guarantee, I’m not driving that much since I’m a teleworker

GMC Acadia 2017-18 had a similar problem with Park not being fully engaged even in it was shifted into it. But there was some question about the repair if was actually going to fix it, just something to be mindful of about your service.

I had that issue fixed on my Regal this past winter. Seems like it's a common issue. Luckily mine was still under warranty.

Dropped my car off last night for this issue. First happened a little over a week ago, and a wiggle of the shifter cleared the message. 3 days ago it took lots of shifting, wiggling the shifter, etc to clear it. Yesterday it would not clear. Car was in park and engine off, but everything stays "on" inside because it doesn't think it's in park. Haircuts, car still "on" when we get back in. Gas station, car still "on". Home eating dinner, car still "on". Luckily it shut off when I dropped it after hours. Hopefully they replicate it today.

New shifter assembly ordered. Will be replaced under warranty. Hopefully done tomorrow or Friday. Not that it matters much, riding the 55 mpg motorcycle to work most days anyway (which ends up a wash in savings, as I often take many more miles on the commute).

The answer from tech advisor is that their mechanic tech tried many times and no issue. At the end of the day, even if I showed a picture, the final word is that there’s no bulletin about this !$@&$+%+*, NO BULLETIN NO PROBLEM…..WTF! I will take a picture every time it happens!!!

For my dealer, I took a picture every single time that problem came back and a video, I think that’s enough to proof that it need to be repaired 😁

Update: went to my dealership today, since they don’t know what is the fix, they ordered the hole transmission control unit and they reserved 2 hours to replaced, they never worked on a GS!!!!

They must be replacing a different part or parts because the gas pedal assembly from GM isn’t connected to the brake pedal. 684EA553-46CC-44BC-9E59-FF1B15E0DE4A.jpeg
