I recently posted about my shift selector lever locking up on me ('92 w/auto. trans.).
Today I pulled the console covers to see if the solenoid was gummed up (it seemed fine- not dirty at all).
Now when the selector is out of P, I can move it to the other positions without pressing the grip button. The only exception is that the button has to be pressed to go from N to R.
I did loosen the selector lever (two screws on side) so I could lift the indicator cover up a bit to see the solenoid better. When I did this the grip button came out. But I thought I got it back together correctly.
I know this is a stupid question, but the grip button needs to be pressed in order to be able to move the selector from say, D to N or 3,2,1 doesn't it? I never really tried to do so without pressing it, so I don't know if I screwed it up!
If I did, any suggestions about what to do? I REALLY need to get it back together today!

When in doubt read the manual. Sorry for the lame post. Don't ban me for being an idiot.
