Read you owner's manual and it should explain how to unlock the shifter. I believe that the 453 shifter is similar to the 451 shifter. On the 451, you have to slightly pry up the front of the shifter cover on the front where it contacts the floor carpet. You will see a yellow lever that when pushed either down or up, will release the shifter one time.

Oddly, brake light bulbs malfunctioning can cause similar errors (related to the EBD)... it's worth a quick check to make sure all your brake lights are working. Could also be brake light switch.

This is from the owners manual:

67338


Not sure if that is of any help.
