Mein Auto: 750il
E38 750iL gearbox doesnt always know it's in park!

Sometimes you get in and all is ok but other times even though the car is in park it doesn't light up the P on the dash and the car won't start unless you select neutral. I am guessing it is some kind of switch? Anybody know where it is how much and how easy to do? Also I have a whistling noise coming from the engine, sounds like it is a pulley ? I have had a new alternator water pump and power steering pump... Any more ideas?

Thanks so much guys :-)
