I really love my car right now. I went on a date last night and when I went to the door, I left my car running. IT LOCKED ME OUT!!! I had to call my brother and wait an hour before he brought the spare keys.

Anyways, this problem just started. Most of the time it doesnt read that my car is in park and automatically locks the doors when running. When I put it in park it is fine until it rolls to the stopping point and then it doesnt read on the dash that it is in any gear. On start up, I have to put the car in neutral before it will start.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had a problem once on my old car where the trans cable needed to be adjusted. I had similar symptoms to what you're describing.1 Not sure how its done, this was back when I still had shops do my work. They were able to adjust the cable and then everything worked properly again.

The transmission cable is the long thick cable that runs from the firewall to right behind (and down) from the ABS computer. You should be able to see it right by the throttle body.

It's the only cable that I know of in that area with springs in it. You can slide the collar back and pop out the link with a flat-bladed screwdriver, adjust it, and put it back together.

Well I messed around with it yesterday and no luck. I went to a couple different part stores and they couldnt pull up any switch or sensor that would be causing that. What is the actual name of it and where did you guys get yours?
