The vehicle was inspected by a dealer who was able to duplicate the problem, but would not remove the out-of-park alarm. I had to stop because I was about to break through the holes. The reason he wanted it returned to the prior condition is that the vehicle keeps honking and the vehicle head lights are flashing every time he leaves the vehicle idling. While placed in park, the vehicle rolled backwards into the woods with the keys in the ignition and the motor running. I had a similar problem with mine jumping from park to reverse.
The vehicle has not been taken to the dealership because the contact does not approve of the manufacturers remedy. The vehicle was then taken to the dealership where the rooster tail in the transmission was replaced. On other occasions, could not get the key out of the ignition when it shifted into park.

Mine was just as smooth as a new penny. Faulty fasteners created the potential of a fluid leak that could cause a gas leak and present the danger of a fire. I have not had a problem with my truck but now always set the parking brake when getting out of the truck because of uncertainty of the shifter. It displays that it is in reverse and it will not start due to this. The vehicle jumped out of park into reverse and hit another vehicle. The contact received a recall letter concerning the power train automatic transmission. It has happened many times since then but since I expect and anticipate the incident it is without consequence.
The dealership informed the contact that the audible portion of the recall was not part of the kit for this vehicle. I stopped the truck, put the truck in park and looked at the indicator to make sure it was in park. Thank you I had this problem with a friends 05 dodge 3500. The vehicle was driven once again for a short amount of time before the problem happened. They stated their only obligation was to tow to the nearest dealer. That dealer, bell-mcall, did not have the wherewith all to fix the vehicle.
