Hello.

Just to share an issue if you're experiencing trouble engaging your shifter, and having it lock, &/or are having trouble getting your key out of the ignition, chances are, your shifter unlock button, on your gear selector, is broken.

There is a service bulleting about this issue with several Chevy Models: Trax, Sonic among others. In the below videos I'm sharing, the repair is actually pretty easy where with a small flat blade screwdriver, go ahead and do it yourself, rather then taking your car to the stealership, and wasting money. Goind to the dealership, surely will charge you around $400!

The shifer button repair kit is GM part # 4242-3234 and can be found in Amazon or eBay (the last 4 digits could differ depending the color of the knob plate cover: chrome, mate, gold, etc.)

Video 2 (this one is more detailed however is in spanish. Sorry):

Just an advice:
1. When removing the parts, be care not to remove the spring what makes the button return. Otherwise you wll have a pain to put it again.
2. Be sure the hole of the new part be enough big in order the pin could pass over there.


Regards.

Thanks for this post. GM doesn't have this kit listed for the Trax but the Trax has the same shifter as the Sonic and maybe the Cruze.
