Do you hear a click when you step on the brake? theres a little arm on the right side of the shifter that locks the stick release button from going down. Use an allan key to take off the shifter knob, then lift up the cover - you 'll see the little solenoid on the right. You can just tie it off if you want. But you still want t find out why the solenoid isn't working
