Shifter won't move.

I have a 09' 4cyl automatic engine with 54k.

About 30min ago when when I parked the shifter would not move past neutral into reverse and go into park. I can go from D into neutral or the next slot over for manual shifting. Naturally this causes a problem as you can't take the key out of the ignition if its not in park.

I took a screw driver and popped open the cap for the shift release button and used that to move it into park. Turned car off, back on, etc etc seemed fine. So when I tried moving it into reverse and it wouldn't budge. It instead would make a electronic click or snap coming form the steering column but more back toward the engine. Like more into the dash area but back in it. It would make this noise every time I attempted to move it but it wasn't a continuous sound. Just once with each jerk to the side to move it out of park.

So the car works fine except for this. I used it with the screw driver/shift release to unlock it and it drives fine. Goes into reverse and back in park but if I move it into neutral or drive it will not **** back into reverse or park.

Anyone have experience with this?

P.S. Thankfully I bought extended warranty. I'm not sure if the manufacture warranty transfers to new owners when its sold. Hopefully its nothing major.

So can you take it out from P to R at all?
I was thinking maybe you have the brake light switch issue, but I thought those were issues on the older model.

At any rate, that particular issue should be fixed for free.
