Sounds like you could actually have a shifter problem. If it won't start in Park, that would indicate the shifter position value is not being measured correctly. I would imagine that could also cause the overdrive to not be selectable. I suggest you take it to a competent shop. It's also unlikely that it would need parts that aren't available. Transmission shops are usually the worst place to go for any issue- even transmissions.

Thank you. Will consider it.
