 Description of the problemI had drive my 2016 ram 2500 mega cab cummins diesel 4x4 to a place on a slight decline. I placed the transmission in park (column shift) and left the truck running. I had not applied the parking brake. Within a few seconds i noticed the truck beginning to roll downhill. I looked at the gear indicator and noticed it was in park. I stepped on the brake and the truck stopped. I released the brake and it began rolling forward again. I stepped on the brake again and the truck stopped. I grabbed the gear selector and it would not move. I stepped on the brake and then moved the gear selector through reverse, neutral and drive and could feel the vehicle torque with each gear change. I placed the selector back in park and the vehicle rolled slightly and then stopped as it normally does. My vehicle was checked by an authorized dealer who said they found no problem, including the test for the brake interlock that was recalled. I am concerned that there is another problem, perhaps with the parking pawl not engaging on an intermittent basis.
