Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada
I have a 2000 Old Bravada. Every so often, 3 times today alone, when I stopped, put the shift into park, and tried to turn off the vehicle, the key wouldn't turn all the way back to come out. Typically, when I put the shift into park, I hear a metalic "click" in the steering column, and I can turn the key back and remove without incident. When I put it into park, and do not hear that sound, without fail, the key won't come out. Smetimes it can take up to 5-10 minutes of turning the wheel, and jiggling the key before it will turn back and come out. I have been given conflicting advice on what it is. One mechanic says it is the barrell and it needs to be replaced; one mechanic says it is a "spring" in the floor shifter keeping a plate from sensing the car is in park, so it won't release the key; and one other mechanic said the entire plate and cellinoid need to be replaced, at a cost of $900. Help!
This is a floor shift? Have you noticed the transmission sticking in third? Do you feel you have the ability to take the shifter apart? It's a problem with the shift interlock solenoid. If the transmission is sticking in 3rd also it is a power supply to the solenoid from it ignition switch. If the transmission works fine I can tell you how to fix it or bypass it.
