SOURCE: Chrysler 300 won't shift out of park

I had the same problem with my 05. I couldn't shift out of park. So, I checked brake pedal sensor, and wire linkage and they were fine. I took the center console apart and pulled out the shifter assembly and sure enough the problem was at the assembly. There is a plastic piece. that hooks to a small spring that snapped. I ened up renforcing it with a small clamp hose, and ever since its been functioning fine. I imagine I saved my over $500 bucks of repair cost and also wouldn't be surprize for others to have the same problem.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Chrysler 300 and I can't shift out

1st thing to do is "Check your brake lights" make sure it work, because it trigger the sensors that will allow you to shift into Reverse or Drive.
2nd, Your car turn on, everything seem fine, but it still get stuck half way to R (reverse) then here's the problem. If everything is fine, you can shift half way to R(reverse) and it get stuck half way, then its the Mechanism inside of the Shifter Box that's defect. As this is VERY VERY common in Chrysler 300. And Chrysler should do a defect & recall about this problem. there's a Piece of plastic hook inside the Shifter gear that's broken, because its very very thin, about 1 1/2 Centimeter, therefore, its very easy to break. BUT Chrysler doesn't sell this part alone, they sell the whole Shifter Box for about 350. But that hook is all you need. here's 2 way to fix this problem.

1. You can go directly to a Chrysler Dealer, ask for a SHIFTER GEAR BOX, or GEAR SELECTOR. its about 350 BRAND NEW, then take it to a mechanic for them to install it, $100 for labor as most. 2. if you know a little bit about car, and can fix it yourself, then its not that hard. you can go to a junkyard, buy that Shifter Box yourself, then replace it, or

You can open up that shifter gear box, Modify a hook for that spring, you can either 1. Drill a hole in that plastic piece and hook that spring, or use some type of metal string to ties that spring in place. and i guarantee it will fix the problem.

I advice not to take it to the service center as they will simply tell you its a Electronic Problem and will charge you 500+ $.
Thank you, Have a nice day Sir.

There's most likely a problem with the shift interlock system. To get you where you need to go you may over ride the system by placing the key in the on position, remove the liner of the cubby bin to the right of the shifter. This should gently pry out. There should be a button or an opening apparent now. While depressing this button you should be able to shift out of park.

Newer vehicles use electric solenoids to lock the shifter in park until the ignition is on and brake pedal depressed. If there is a fault in the brake switch, shift interlock solenoid, pcm or associated wiring you'll experience what you've described. The first thing to check is to see if your brake lights work. If they don't work then you know the brake pedal switch is likely the culprit and to focus you're attention at that part. The switch is mounted on the brake pedal usually above the pad. Look for physical damage, damage to wires etc. If they do work, it may still be the switch as some have more then one leg of the switch. One part of the switch may work while the other doesn't.

2007 chrysler 300 stuck in park how to get it out of park

Could be the brake switch or the lock solenoid among other things.
You could try moving the shifter before you turn the key switch to the on position.
The brake pedal sends a signal to the shift lock solenoid to unlock it.
That circuit would need to be checked.
