Shift Interlock soleniod would not let shifter out of park until it
warmed up. I think I fixed problem by disconecting solenoid. Does
solenoid have any other function other than safety back-up to engaging
xmsn with foot off brake pedal? If not, I think I can do without it.
No, that's all it does is block the shifter until the brake pedal is
pressed. Likely the solenoid is sticking or something. You could just leave
it unplugged if you wish, assuming you don't have kids likely to play with
the shifter when the car's parked with the engine running :-)

It probably just doesn't let you take it out of gear without the brake on as
you said, and it probably acts like the neutral safety switch - with it
disconnected, you will probably now be able to start the car while in gear.
The only purpose for this solenoid is to prevent driver to shift
transmission from park to any gear if brake not applied.
You wont be able to start the car if not in neutral or park
WRONG> with it disconnected, you will probably now be able to start the car
