Shiftlock solenoid selector lever wrongly not locked in P

I am wondering if anybody has any idea about this error message on My car ( European F56 MINI Cooper 2-door hardtop built on 07/15/2015 with the B38 engine).
Currently, every time I put the car in P and switch the car off and open my door, I get a warning message Secure vehicle against rolling. I chick the car with a diagnostic tool, which won't clear the error.

The error says "Shiftlock solenoid selector lever wrongly not locked in P intermittent ” code 420106.

One of the forum members had the same problem and I asked him but I could not get any answer from him but he said the company told him he should go for a new control unit at £958+VAT to replace it.*( what does he mean by new control unit )?

yes, you remove the center plastic, then you can undo the shifter from where it is in the car and with some patience get it done.
Thank you Thank you! I have the SAME problem in Italy...BMW wants € 700,00 + hours...insane....I have forwarded the Link with your explanations to my mechanic. Thank you again!
I bought the outrageously price spring from eBay, but it worked perfectly. 3.5 hrs mostly on trim fiddling. No coding required, the error just went away after re-assembly. View attachment 281468
Here’s my spring, kindly offered by the mechanic 😂
