references to F are for farenheit which would be out of context. Don't you have a check engine lite where we could read the codes to see why is not letting you shift out of drive and is displaying F (fault)...check your owners manual would be more authority on this.

im thinking! im thinking! remember i'm just a guru apprentice, ok you know the thingy that really tic ya off when you try to move the shifter, and its stuck or locked that the older cars did not have? myself i usally get ahold of this s o b and burn it off ,twist it off,whatever and then the doors lock me in,honestly sometime id like to grab a ball pien hammer and? no im saving it for the one that ordered this silly in my car ! and now look what sebo says dont know what happen? out of the blue the F vanished and off and running,so my prophetic view is,,yes it was gummy bears and yes the F is a P with a chipped paint,and yes it will reappear at the next stop ! oh vey we try

right on jimmy7, that's using your brain!...the ballpeen probably will not churn out the desired result...but you'll get it OUT of your system...at the cost of facing up to your transgressions~...cannot express the JOY that I'm feeling right now that we were able to tackle this with your gut intuition....here I kept thinkin 'F' yeah like the grades I got in every class in high school!
