I had one in mine in the truck. Turned out to be that part of the floor pan was resting on the shifter bracket off the tranny. Insulated that and it worked out. Call Lokar, so far, they have been very helpfull to me.

I too have a BUZZ, more like a rattle,
It originates from the tolerance fit center button and the knob body.
I hold the button firm and no buzz,

Anyone have any ideas about how tro remedy this??

Go to a soft mount
Rubber bushings, tightened down to hold the shifter in place. They make a rubber insulator bushings for elect stuff so its not grounded. Do you get the idea?


Rat Rods Rule!

I have experienced this same problem and found that it is an adjustment thing. If you are slightly out of adjustment, the center button does not return all the way out with enough spring tension. Try doing a bit of adjusting like the installation instructions say and you can get it to snap back and not buzz.
