2018 Traverse Shift to Park

We have a 2018 Redline Traverse with 24000 miles on it. It has started saying "shift to park" on the screen even when it is in park. When this happens we cant lock it and it sits there and dings. Can get it to go off by wiggling the shifter but it is getting worse. Any ideas?

There have been a few threads on shifter issues on 2nd Gens. Requires replacement of the shift.

Shift to park

This just started happening to my 2018 Premier the past few days! 19,000+ miles. Took it to dealer this am, needs new shifter and he said he's ordering the bezel because most do not survive the replacement. I know its an issue that needs repair because to happened to my daughter's 2016 (redesigned model) Malibu last year! And there was a 2018 at the dealer waiting for the bezel from its shift to park repair!

I had it happen very early on my 2017 Acadia and it was a problem for months while GM tried to find a solution. Eventually an entire new shifter assembly was installed, updated part number, and the problem disappeared. There are 8 pages of people with that issue on the Acadia forum, all but one was corrected by the new shifter assembly.

This started happening to mine 3 weeks ago. I went to the dealer who said they had fixed it.

Had to return a second time to the dealer because this time I couldn't get it to stop at all.

A service technician came over, pulled on the shift-lock moved the shifter a bit and it stopped beeping.

They ordered a new shifter assembly and replace it last Friday. Guess what happened when I got home... yep! did it again.

I recorded a video so that everyone at the dealership that needs to know will be able to see it themselves.

Just sent an email to the service manager with a link to the video and asked him to call when they are ready for me again.

Here is the link to the video. Thought some of you would like to see it. For those to whom it's happened already, this will be very familiar.

2018 Traverse 'Shift to park'

Hello - My 2018 Traverse had shift to park alert two weeks ago. I brought the Traverse into the dealership on 7/9/19 and I was told that day that they were ordering the replacement part - new gear shift. Its now 7/21 and still - the part is not in. As mentioned by others, the part is not available in the US with no ETA. Frustrating.

Thanks for posting this. Our 2018 with 30K just started this “Shift to Park” problem today. I’ll be taking it to the dealer tomorrow.... I’m glad we bought the extended warranty, we still have 70K for them to get it right 👍🏻

I was surprised. I dropped my Traverse off at the dealer today and they had a shifter in stock. They replaced it in a single day and I picked it up this afternoon. I’ll update this thread as it unfolds.
