Question Gear Shift issues On 04 Ram 3500.

I bought a 04 Ram 3500 Quad Cab DRW. At the dealer they told me all of the recalls were complete on my truck. However, my automatic gear shift indicator has a "box" that outlines the gear it is in (ie. Park, Reverse, Neutral, Drive) sometimes does not outline the Park, Neutral or Reverse positions. Not a big deal unless you open the door and the "Out of Park" alarm starts to sound. Has anyone else had this issue? What will I need to do to fix it? Any ideas would be appreciated.

It could be a faulty instrument cluster, is a possible suspect.

Called my local dealer today and was told they may need to "re-flash" my computer to fix the problem. I was also told that the sensor may be failing and I would have to pay anywhere from $250. to $900. for the part. (!) Wow.... Hope I need flashing! LOL

If thats the case look for the parts online, way cheaper than the dealer.
