    Here's a weird one: Stopped at a coffee shop on my way to work, and the car wouldn't go in to Park. I could shift it to Neutral, Drive or Reverse, but the Park button wouldn't do anything. I didn't want to leave it in neutral, so I played around a bit more and it finally DID go in to Park, but the door handles didn't extend.

    The handles did extend when I opened the door from the inside, and they did auto-present when I came back with my coffee.

    When I arrived at work (fingers crossed), it did go into Park, but the door handles again did not extend until I got out.

    I didn't have a chance to try a center screen re-boot, but will over the lunch hour. Not sure if that's something a re-boot could fix (thinking that the car's primary controls -- including being able to shift gears) were supposedly separate from the types of things the center screen controls.

    Try manually engaging the brake and powering off the car using the center screen, then contact your SC and [email protected]. This is a big issue and they need to know about it.
