    Default 2011 XC70 won't shift out of Park

    I'm at work and received a call from my wife that she can't shift out of park in her 2011 XC70 (non-AWD). Everything else seems ok, no lights on dash. Car has 89K miles and everything was operating normally yesterday.

    I will do some online searching, but looking for the expert advice of this group on what to look at.

    Thanks in advance.

    The car shifted out of Park yesterday when the temperatures were warmer. Today it's back down in the single digits and now the car won't shift out of Park. I could hear a click near the shifter when I pressed the brake pedal yesterday, today I don't hear it. Based on the limited information I could find, it could be one of two things - the brake pedal switch or the shift interlock solenoid.

    I've replaced pedal switches in the past, but not familiar with the shift interlock solenoid. Has anyone had any experience replacing this? Why would it only be a problem when it is cold?
