Lately, after I shift into Park and try to turn the ignition off, I get a prompt to shift into Park and am unable to turn the ignition off, which is to say, the electrical contact is not recognizing the car is in Park. If I restart the car, shift into Drive, then shift to park, it eventually recognizes it, but sometimes it takes two or three attempts to get it to respond and allow me to turn the car off. Obviously I need to bring it in for service, but my reason for posting is to see if others have encountered this.

I've read about this in the gen2 volt forums and the Malibu forums I believe. I think it occurred in 2016 and maybe 2017s. The dealer should be familiar with this and how to fix it.

Will leaving the electronics on when this happens, drain the battery?
Eventually and yes it has happened to some owners. It is something that needs to be fixed.

Take your car to the chevy dealer, they should have a TSB to address the issue.

This happened to me over a week's period. Finally, it would not shut off. I took it to a Chevrolet dealer and they fixed it in about 1 1/2 hours....for $600.
