According to other sources I have found in researching this question on the web .. the problem is most likely the Shift Lever Assembly. From the MSN Site:"An occasional problem with this vehicle is the Shift Lever Assembly (Transmission Shift Lock Actuator), automatic transmission only, and the Ignition Lock Cylinder Assembly. A failure of the Shift Lever Assembly will prevent the Ignition Key from being removed from the Ignition Lock Cylinder. Failure of the Ignition Lock Cylinder may prevent he vehicle from starting. The cost to repair the Shift Lever Assembly is estimated at $73.00 for parts and $71.50 for labor. The cost to repair the Ignition Lock Cylinder is estimated tat $21.54 for parts and $39.00 for labor. All prices are estimated at $65.00 per flat rate hour and does not include diagnostic time and applicable taxes.
