    It’s not driver error when you’re in a parking spot, clutch is fully engaged, and it’s not letting you access first but every other gear is open

    But I wish it was driver error, then I’d at least know what was going on. Ha

    New development: after parked for awhile, huge clunk when attempting reverse.

    Feels like the parking brake is engaged but it isn’t and it takes a good amount of gas to power through the resistance, huge mechanical clunk and bang. Recorded it on video twice and it happened a total of 3x today.

    No warning lights, parking brake off, and everything works fine once I’m moving. Reverse is ok after driving for a bit, just that initial parking that does it.

    I’m awaiting the dealer response since I emailed them the videos.

    I'd take it in for sure

    Still awaiting an official diagnosis but I suspect it may be the parking brake freezing to the rear drum brakes — will post what I find out when I get the truck back.

    Either way this shouldn’t be happening in 2018.

    How that would influence the transmission confuses me. Also seems to confuse the dealer.

    It’s likely an entirely separate issue but since I was the OP on this thread I threw it in here.

    You’re right, def unrelated but potentially trans related.

    When I got the truck back they logged my new issue for the record but didn’t do any fixes.

    Separately also had the TSB 0059-18 for disabling the pre-collision system done but it didn’t seem to work. It restarts when the truck is turned back on again — I’ll be going back.

    My truck did the same thing. It is the rear brake delaying. I forgot what the part is in the brake line that balances the braking power, but that sticks when it’s older.
