Question type: General

When my car start I hear a sound like things are kicking on
is that normal and when I am in park and push on my
break while it running the lock on my gear shifter clicks is
that normal

1 Answer


Yes, that's normal. What you're hearing is the solenoid locking and unlocking the shifter as you press and release the brake pedal. Hope that helps! Jim
