Recurring problem with my 2006 Malibu. When the shift indicator light does not show the gear I am in also the shift lock from the bake peddle not working . At the same time the brake and accelerator pedals do not move forward and back. Also the reverse lights don’t work. Also it does not shift like it should. Please help.

Sounds very much like a fuse or relay, or maybe several of them. That could mean:
  • a loose connection somewhere
  • a wire that has been damaged such as:
    • chewed by a rodent
    • shorted on a sharp edge or moving part

There is a wire harness that gets fatigued and fails where it goes into the shifter. Look for individual wires in he harness that feel "rubbery" when you wiggle test it, or take the connector apart and look for backed out terminals. If inspection reveals either condition, GM has a pigtail available to repair it.

Tried the pigtail and thin wire thing. Nothing to fix the problem. If anyone has anything else for me to try. Much appreciated!!
