Default Sticking issues fixed

Last night a friend showed me how to replace the automatic control shifter and door opener switch in my 06.

I was having problems with the button not releasing to allow it to put into any other gear than park. I would have to play with it and eventually it would release. Same with trying to opening the drivers side door. I would have to squeeze the handle extra hard to release the latch.

Did not take any pics but will try to get some this weekend.

For those who have had the shifter issue, did you bypass the parking pawl or replace the microswitch? From reading over at the other place, it seems like there is no direct replacement for the switch so most people have just wired the pawl back.

This just started happening to me this spring, I wish I would have known it was and issue when I had the console apart for the nav install. It looks like I'll be pulling it apart again,
