The solenoid is part of the Shift Lock system. The solenoid is located under the console and the gear position indicator. It has a 2-pin connector and should be attached to the shifter with a single retaining screw.
To test it apply battery voltage to the solenoid through terminal 5 (red wire) of the A/T device connector and terminal 1 (blue wire) of the shift lock solenoid connector. If the solenoid doesn't have an audible click then it is bad.

Definitely check fuse no. 26 10A fuse lower left of the interior fuse panel first before tearing into the console.
Also removing the console is not a something to be reactionary about. I can guarantee that it is nearly impossible to deploy the airbag(s) by working in the console area. I only take precautions when working on the steering wheel, the column, or the passenger side airbag. If the restraint system is a concern then to disarm it you remove the negative and positive battery cable then wait ten to fifteen minutes for the power supply to deplete itself. Then the system is totally disarmed.
