Transmission may Incorrectly Display ‘PARK’

If the gear shift cable clip becomes unseated or dislodged, the gear shift lever position may indicate that the transmission is in ‘Park’ when it may be in a different gear. Additionally, despite selecting ‘Park’, if the parking brake is not applied before the vehicle is exited, the vehicle may roll. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash.
