My car won't start and is stuck in park.

Will the starter motor crank? Do you have a shift interlock bypass button? If there is one and you have a console shifter, it should be close to the shifter, with foot on the brake, push the button down and shift into neutral, then see if it will start.
I can think of two possibilities, the shift interlock system, won't let you shift it w/o your foot on the brake and or the neutral switch/transmission range sensor, won't let you crank it unless the tranny is in park or neutral.
Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

If the engine has started, the safety interlock is bad. (an electrical interlock. Or the linkages to the shift lever are bad, or the bushings on the linkage, or even problems with the shift lever pivot.

My 1997 Chevy Cavalier automatic transmission is stuck in neutral and the shifter just glides from park, won't engage in any gears.

If the shift handle moves extremely freely (more than normal), changes are that the shift cable has become disconnected from the shift lever. This would explain the indicator not moving out of neutral.
You will need to access the shift lever by removing the console cover. Once you access the shifter check the cable connection to the level. If the cable is broken, it will need replacement. If the cable clip has broken or fallen off, it will need to be reattached.

Gear shifter stuck in park and car will not start

The can can't run. Why need to shift...?
If you want to shift anyway. Be careful if down or up hill the car will roll.
Here if need to shift away:
-Put key in ignition, turn to start, but do not start.
Now apply brake then shift.

My gear shift is stuck in park. The car starts up fine, but shifter wont budge.

the fuse is bad for shift lock solenoid. Read owner manual section on brak-shift interlock. Check fuse for nbrake lights. Brake lights work.

Owner manual has emergency by pass procedure. I think you turn key to OFF and then shift to neutral and start car then. Next time in park, you have to repeat.
