will not release.? So I'm stuck in park. Someone indicated that it is probably a bad solenoid. They said some people "override" the solenoid by fixing it so that it is always open. Or I can get it replaced. Anyone familiar with this? The vehicle is old and cranky and I don't want to put a lot of money into it.

there is a gear selector with two bolts on it. if one of the bolts are loose you cannot correctly select the gears. tighten the bolts and you will be able to select the gears. it is near the transmission fluid pan, center van.

under the brake pedal, there are two switches, one for brake lights,one for gear selector release.
