The shiter interlock has broken at the shifter...pull the cover from the shifter and locate the then wire at the front left side of the assembly...start the vehicle...apply foot brake,,,push rearward on the plastic piece the cable attaches to at th shifter...and pull into gear.
this not a repair...the only true fix is to replace the shifter assembly

I can not shift out of park


there are 2 reasons.
1: park lock out is broken (brake switch activated)
2: or the tires are jammed in to a curb, going down hill,
(known as parking pawl lock up , inside the tranny)
(is car on flat ground?)
you never said what car, just jeep and they made jeeps from 1941 to now. so cant guess.
what jeep?
many jeeps, have a hidden super secret (in the operator guide under how to drive a A/T)
secret bypass. lever on the shift console.
so post year, and model of jeep and we can dig that up.
or go to alldata.com , log in and read, the park lock out page.

Shifter interlock


what car, you never said? NOR YEAR?
park lock out feature;. its broken , they do that. (BTSI system)
got A/T? or M/T both auto and stick shift have lockout.

no car/year, you get the generic answer.
there is a park lockout DEFEATER on most cars, (never on new cars,due to federal bs)

on the shift console, see the defeat device.
the operators guide covers this. its for EMERGENCIES.
pick one.
http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/jeep/

the A/T box,
Brakes + handle button press, unlocks BTSI

on 2005 and up , no bypass
if the key gets locked too, that tells you what is bad , on newer jeeps
on newer jeeps read this
http://www.lostjeeps.com/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=366251

this feature (pain) has many failure points.
any cable that jams, there are 2 , one to tranny or ignition
switch. and the brake solenoid unlocker in shift handle.
and the button, to unluck shifter, brake switch (no brake lights/)
to diagnosis it is easy , dismantle the console at shifter
then disconnect cables to find if one is stuck, (easy huh?)
and defeat the solenoid, by hand or 12v applied. and check the button
that it does in fact release.
NOT PARK LOCKOUT: (for if not on flat ground?)
reason 2 , driver, parked on a hill with tire to curb and did so
not setting brakes first (or bad ebrake ) and now the tranny parking
pawl is jammed , opps. so wiggle the steering and wiggle shifter,
or have some one push car forward (parked up hill on right) to release
parking pawl. (or gorilla it, ask bubba to muscle it out of park.)
if down hill , well, you get the idea..... pain.. gotta love A/Ts not.
Folks in Sanfranciso, just roll eyes at you, new in town>?

now the grand cherroke,, why not post car model, and year, dang.

quote 2010 oper guide, get one.
Brake/Transmission Interlock Manual Override Your vehicle may be equipped with a shift lock manual override. The manual override may be used in the event that the shift lever should fail to move from PARK with the ignition switch in the ON position and the brake pedal pressed. To operate the shift lock manual override, perform the following steps: 1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position without starting the engine. 2. Firmly set the parking brake. 3. Using a flat-bladed screwdriver, carefully remove the shift lock manual override cover, which is located on the PRNDL bezel. 4. Press and maintain firm pressure on the brake pedal. 5. Using the screwdriver, reach into the manual override opening. Press and hold the shift lock lever down. Interlock Manual Override end quote.

Cant shift out of park without having key in shift lock


With the engine running, you should be able to feel and hear the shift-lock engage and disengage when you slowly press and release the brake. Start her up, turn the radio off, put your hand on the shifter and give it a try.

If you hear or "feel" it, and it won't shift, I'm guessing your linkage is out of whack, perhaps a result of the accident.

If you don't feel it, I'm guessing it's not getting the "unlock" signal from the brake switch. I believe the shift-lock switch is located at the top of the brake pedal assembly, where it pivots up under the dash. There's probably two switches there, one for brake lights, the other for the lock. Crane your head up under there and take a look. If you're lucky its just misaligned in its bracket. Pump the pedal by hand and see if the switches are being allowed to fully open. If they do, and still no shifty, then its off to the repair shop of Mazda Stealership.

Good luck.

It sounds much like failed linkage which is better than about anything else you checked.
I recommend procuring a Haynes or Chilton manual for your car. It will not only help you locate the source of your current misery but serve you well in the future too. They are available at about any auto parts store for ~$20 US

Car will not come out of park


You must press on the brake pedal to release the shift lever. Start the car, and have someone watch the rear brake lights as you press the brake pedal. If the rear brake lights do not turn on when the brake pedal is pressed, the plug for the brake light switch is probably off. This will also keep the shift lever locked. Check around and underneath the brake pedal for any loose wires or plugs and repair as necessary. You can manually release the shifter by inserting a key or screwdriver into the shifter release slot. Check owners manual for the location of the release slot.
