Check the cable that is located above the steering wheel, it affects the shifting mechanism. My Buick was recently having this same problem. Tear open the cover to your steering wheel and locate the black cable that runs over the top and around the back side of the steering wheel. This may be the problem if it isn't sitting properly.
