It's the brake to shift solenoid on top of the steering column. It's sticking. Turn the ignition one click away from you (clockwise) and step on the brake pedal so the vehicle won't roll. Shift into neutral and start the engine. The solenoid is located on top of the lower steering column with the ignition switch and headlight dimmer switch. HTH. -Jim
