Your transmission could be getting weak or the module on the side of the transmission needs replaced

Hi Daniel, I believe that your problem may be connected to the safety locking devise which will not allow the lever to shift until the brake is pressed and the button pushed in. It may be a bad contact. Regards John

Delay in transmission when starting car


Low transmission fluid, clogged transmission filter etc. Check the fluid level, check for leaks if low. Repair any leaks, if leaking from the transmission pan gasket you'll have to replace it. It'll be a good time for a transmission tune-up.
