If using a printed copy of this Retailer Technical Journal, first check for the latest online version.
On the vehicles listed in the header with the T6 engine only (engine 99), customers may complain of a message in the DIM that reads, 'Select P or N to
start' when gear selector is already in Park or Neutral.
There is a Transmission Control Module (TCM) software (SW) Upgrade available (see RTJ16761) but the following fault tracing should be followed
first. After the fault tracing has been followed and after repairs/adjustments/calibrations are made (if any), the TCM Upgrade should be downloaded.
Check for paper or other conflict with the gear position sensor selector. The selector can be accessed according to VIDA:
Removal, replacement, and installation
Gear lever carrier
Gear lever carrier, gear selector controls
Gear position sensor, gear selector assembly
