for the past few days, i am unable to put it into gear without using the manual override, with the exception of when i went into the dealer to get an oil change yesterday.  all day yesterday i was able to put it into gear without using the overrride.  This morning, after checking the break light fuse(appears to be fine), i tried to put it into gear and it wouldn't go into gear.

there is a switch on the gear shifter when you push the brake pedal it unlocks the shifter turn key on and listen for a clicking when you push the brake if no click look for bad fuse
