You have a transaxle shift lock on your vehicle which as I'm sure you know the brakes nust be applied in order to shift out of park. The switch could be bad or if your battery is below 9 volts this will happen. Most cars have a spot where you can stick a key or a screwdriver in to bypass it. Guess what? you don't on your vehicle but there is a way to bypass it and it will work about 90 percent of the time. Apply the brake and then try to shift normally. If it won't shift (which is your problem in the first place) ease of on the pressure as far as trying to shift but don't let a go. Push the lever foward GENTLY as if you are putting it in park all the way. Keep the brake pedal pushed in at all times while you are doing this. After you gently "put it back in park" then try to change gears. No jerking motions just nice and smoothly do it. This is the only way it will work unless you get down and do electrical kind of bypassing on the switch which would be very hard for me to explain because I don't have the wire color codes and stuff to give you. I do hope this works and good luck.

There are 2 different engines that came in the Lucerne in 2006 and I am not sure which one the CXS had. In any case below are pictures of both engines as well as locations. If you have the 3.8 liter (6 cylinder) engine you can add coolant directly to the radiator in the spot marked "A". But on your regular fluid checks you want to make sure that where the "B" is marked that the overflow tank there has fluid up to the line that says "full". If you have the 4.6 liter (8 cylinder) engine the overflow tank and where you fill up the radiator are the same (location "A") so that is the location you would fill the radiator as well as check to make sure there is coolant to the "full" line on the tank on your regular fluid checks, When you look at the pictures below you will understand easier. I hope this helps and good luck.

Could be leaky spark plug wires sending some of the spark into the atmosphere. At night if you peep under the hood you would probably see these tiny sparks popping out of the worn wires. Also you may need a tuneup.
