With key in 'on' position before starting the starter solenoid will hummmmm in all gears except P & N. What in the shift linkage/elec connections causes the solenoid to do this? It is obviously to prevent starting in gear but how does it work to make the humming? I ask because my 2005 forester sometimes humms in park and I can't start it. Thanks for any insight.

Pretty sure thats the actual transmission solenoids humming. They will hum with the car started as well, but its usually drowned out by the engine. At a drivethrough I can almost always hear the car buzzing, especially in 1 or 2.
