I have a 2015 mazda 6, the issue below has been going on for a year now...

When I put the car in park, and turn the car off, it tells me to put the gear shifter in park.
I then have to push the button (without pushing brake pedal = not starting car), push the shifter sideways a couple of times and then push the button and the car turns off.

what is wrong and what do i need to do fix this?

There's a switch in the shifter mechanism on the console (which tells the ECU the car is in park) that fails. Mazda knows about it and has an updated part; it's somewhat of a pain in the neck to get to, but in terms of the actual part I think it's about $50.
