Default AT Gear Shifter Shifts w/o Pressing Button

I have had my 2001 TE for over a year now, and have gotten to the point on my list of repairs to see why you don't need to press the shifter button in order to shift.

It doesn't really bother me except my kids drive it occasionally, and I could see one of them jamming it into reverse at 40 mph.

Keeping my fingers crossed that it is a relatively simple fix

well its supposed to be able to shift between D and N without pressing the button, also from 1-3-D in that order without pressing button, but not in reverse order.

If you can shift in reverse order...........or you can shift it into Reverse without use of the button, odds are the lock actuator is broken, or the plunger is just stuck in the "pressed" position .

I didn't realize that. It is working okay, then.

Yep the only thing it shouldnt do.

is shift from drive to reverse, or shift past N to 3 or 1. it should lock when you try to do those.

However if you put it in 1 it should be able to go all the way through the gears into N. but not into R :-D
