On certain vehicles, the park position switch may malfunction due to a problem with the electrical contacts.

This could allow for removal of the ignition key without the shift lever being in the Park (P) position.

If the parking brake is not applied, this could result in unintended vehicle movement, which could increase the risk of crash causing injury and/or damage to property.

Correction: Dealers will install an additional park position switch and circuit board.
