Apparently the pink plastic thingy breaks fairly often. Indigenous what I"ve review over in ~ LXF, Billet technology is do a part now to replace it that have to be much more robust and bust-proof.
In love through my an initial wife & an initial car ("68 Charger) ... Still have the wifebut now there"s the 300C Platinum and an Edelbrock SC Magnum SRT8! ​

The shifter actually has actually two "pink thingys" (watch: YouTube - shift park lockout mechanisim). The one that keeps breaking is inside the shifter. Mine hasn"t broken yet so ns haven"t had actually it apart and also therefore to be not sure if or how the two pink thingys interact. However, the pink thing that you are pressing is the Brake/Transmission shift Interlock device override. This pink thing is on the exterior of the shifter assembly and also is not the one that keeps breaking.In order because that the shifter to move out the park, the ignition should be in the on position and also the brake need to be pressed. The override is design to permit you to move the shifter the end of park in the occasion of an electric system malfunction (see web page 240 the 2007 owner manual). Over there is a solenoid in the shifter that receives electric signals as soon as the ignition crucial is turned on and again as soon as the brake pedal is pressed. To verify the it is working, remove the rubber tray and also lightly touch the pink override tab. Then turn the key to top top - if the is working, you will feel and hear the override move vibrate. Then push the brake pedal, and you will certainly feel/hear that vibrate a 2nd time. If that does not vibrate, you have an electric problem, and also pressing the pink tab will override the solenoid move and allow you to move the shifter out of park. If that vibrates both times yet the shifter tho won"t move out the park, climate the internal pink thingy is more than likely broken. I believe (someone please correct me if I"m wrong) that once the interior pink thingy breaks, the shifter will stay locked in park and pressing the override will certainly not relax it.

So, if the trouble is electrical, it can be the solenoid itself, or a fuse that feeds the circuit. If it"s a fuse, girlfriend would many likely notice other electric functions that are likewise inoperable.
