Even if the relay clicks, the contacts might be arced, causing the problem.
You really need a schematic to fix this thing...

I have a 99 Legacy Outback Wagon (auto trans 2.5L). When it's cold, I cannot shift the car into any gear. I press the button on the shift lever and I cannot pull the lever back into Reverse or Drive. I can hear something clicking below the steering column when I press the button. And yes, I am applying pressure to the brake as I do this. I have to wait until the car warms up before it will work. Sometimes up to 5 minutes. Then it works fine until it's cold again. Winter is coming soon. Can someone help?
I have the same problem with my 00 forester. First thing in the morning when it's cold or when the car has been sitting for a while. I hear clicking, but I cant remember where it's coming from (column, shifter?). In warm weather, absolutely no problems.
I'm not an electrical engineer, but why would cold weather affect the shift lock mechanism? what can be done? it sux to wait 10 minutes before you can get going in the winter.
