Put your foot on the brake before you attempt to put the vehicle in gear... if you cannot do this the safety switch will need replacement... i would check for any blown fuses first tho.

Move the steering wheel back and forth if it is locked that is the problem and you will have to move it back and forth while turning the key if not the ignition switch will need replacing

The shift lever cannot be moved from Park until the brake pedal is depressed. If the brake sensor is not functioning then you will not be able to shift.

My 2010 chevy hhr is stuck in park wont go into gear transmission auto I start the car push down on the brake and cant move the shifter at all cant put it in drive or any gear

Look on the brake pedal lever for an electric switch. Replace the switch and see if that works. If not, get under the vehicle and look for a loose wire on the transmission. If this doesn't work, you will have to take the vehicle to a transmission shop. There is likely a loose wire or a bad servo inside the transmission. But the shop will first run a diagnostic check. They will then know what the problem is and repair it.

Gear shift won't move from Park sometimes. It's stuck!

If the car is inclined severly the shifter will be harder to move as more of a load rests on the park gear. You may have to pull it hard but should come out of park. Make sure your foot is firmly on the brake pedal too and the key is in the on position
