A few months ago, my 2013 Chevy Cruze LTZ started flashing a message when I would put it into park that says "shift to park" and will not let me lock the car and the accessories will not turn off. I have push to start. At first it was just an annoyance and a simple tap of the shifter lever would turn it off and allow me to lock the vehicle. In March, the problem got worse to where sometimes I would be in the car for at least a minute furiously jiggling the shifter to try to get it to sense that it is in park.

I took it to my local dealer and they couldn't get the problem to act up (not surprising, the problem was intermittent). I believe they replaced the shifter knob off of a dealer bulletin. Less than a week later it started doing it again. I didn't rush back to the dealer but after a few days of pure annoyance that I couldn't get out of my car without having an issue (sometimes I would have to restart the car, put it in drive, shut off the car in drive, and THEN shift to park) I ended up taking it back. This time they had it for 10 DAYS and claimed that they could not get it to act up but proceeded to supposedly replace the entire shift assembly now in addition to the shifter.

A week after I got my car back, the problems started again. It has been at the dealer for 4 days now and they say it won't do it. I am at a loss for what to do. When it happens for me it usually will do it 8/10 times that I turn off the vehicle in a day. On the days it doesn't do it, it simply doesn't do it; however, it happens more than not.

Any advice? I even showed the dealership videos I took on my phone over 20 seconds of me banging on the shifter and the light not going off. Thanks!
