Tip & How-To about Chevrolet Astro
My van wouldn't shift from park into gear in the parking lot at work. I had to have it towed. They replace the switch that is spring-loaded to the brake pedal. When you press down on the pedal, that switch pops out and allows you to shift gears. In this case, the spring didn't release so the van wouldn't shift out of park. They replaced the part but I still had the same problem (did they really replace it?). I took the part out, sprayed with WD40 and it's been working great for years.
