Possible recall item?

I was reading on recalls for 97's and I read about a park interlock thing. Well my car doesn't quite do what it says:

On certain passenger vehicles, the floor shifter ignition-park interlock may become defeated and allow the shifter to be moved out the park position with the key removed. an inoperative interlock may also allow the key to be removed when the shifter has not been placed in the park position. This may result in the vehicle rolling away without warning. Dealers will install a new load-limiting push rod into the floor shifter lever of the affected vehicles.


But my car will go out of part without engageing the brake pedal, but only when the car is on. Do you think that this can be classified as part of this recall?

Nope mine does the same thing. They changed it to do that actually. As long as it doeesn't shift out of park while the key is gone, your good.

Why did they change it to do that? I'm not saying your wrong but that just seems dumb to me, because what if you had a kid and they moved it while your not in the car?

Mine too. I do that all the time to get the autostick trim off when working on my cd player/EQ connections.

I never got the recall done one mine. It was kinda nice to be able to shift the car into nutral to roll around without running inside to grab a key. It is set up to shift from 1 to 3 to drive to nutrall without even pressing in the button or from revers to nutral without pushing the button. Non of this takes the brake either, as long as the key is in.

Note the bold text. It's not "brake-park" interlock, 1g's were never equipped with that feature, only need the ignition key in (and turned ON) to move the shifter. Chrysler was late to add that feature to their cars.
