2015 Pro-4x won't stay in Park. Rolls away!

Drove to work today and when I went to park the shift lever would not go all the way into Park and the reverse camera stayed on. I fiddled with it and it felt like it went into Park but when I got out of the truck it started to roll forward (it was on a slight grade) and it was making a clicking sound. Fortunately there was no one else in the lot and I was able to get the door open and hop back in. Got it stopped but it would not start. Finally got it back into Park firmly and drove it around the parking lot a few times but each time I stopped I was unable to get it into Park again. Finally I ran through all the gears and it went into Park. That is how it sits now.

I bought this truck used a few months ago. Only 16k miles on it. Looks brand new. It is still under warranty (I think) so I know I need to take it to the dealer but wondering if anyone else has experience this or heard of it. No warning lights on.

As it is I consider this to be extremely dangerous because the level will go into the Park position and stay there but it is still not engaged fully.

Busted brake solenoid in your shifter is my guess.

I did some Google searches and that issue comes up primarily with people not being able to get it _out_ of Park. Not sure why that would keep it from going into Park.

I drove it around in the parking lot again a few hours ago. No problems.

One the one hand I'm just hoping it was a fluke and not a recurring issue. On the other hand it is so dangerous I'll still probably take it to the dealer. Really sucks to have this happen on a newish truck. I hate when I have to take a vehicle to a dealer/mechanic when I cannot reproduce the problem. Starting to feel a little regret at my choice. (Was debating Ford vs Nissan....have always been a Nissan guy....maybe not as much now).
Pushing your brake pedal sends voltage to your parking solenoid and allows the shifter to release from park and down in to neutral, drive, etc... and you cannot shift back down into reverse and park until you've pressed down on your brake pedal again, which makes me think your parking solenoid may be faulty...

Definitely get it to the dealership ASAP, this could severely hurt or kill someone....
