There should be a cap that you can pop off with a key or small flat screwdriver next to the shift indicator next to the shift lever. lift the cap off and insert your key into the key hole you should be able to shift the lever now if the problem persists take your vibe into the dealer.

Put the emergency brake on. Find the shifter lock override slot, which is usually located on the shifter console close to the shift lever. The slot will be plugged with a plastic cap. Remove the cap and push down on the button with a nail file or other pointed object.

2003 grand prix gear shift gets stuck in park

It is likely the wires to the sensor that detects when it is in park, located inside the center console. (fairly easy to pop the console open, I watched a couple of youtube videos to see someone do it first) The wires are very small (~20 ga) and they are installed with very little slack. The sensor is attached to the gear shifter, so it is pulling on these wires with every shift out of park, especially if you put it all the way down to 1st gear. You likely have a broken wire to this sensor. Splice it back together and that might fix your issue. (we actually had 2 wires broken, and key would not come out of ignition)

2005 pontiac aztek, won't shift out of park. Button can be pushed in but won't move gear shift, acts like it is stuck. What could be happening? $$$$ tight

Modern cars have shift interlock solenoids that prevent you from taking it out of park without pressing the brake. If your brake lights work, then the switch is good and the solenoid needs to be replaced. Look in your owners manual as it will give you instructions for taking it out of park until you get this fixed. It usually involves sticking a screwdriver in from the side to push the release lever out of the way and then you take it out of park.

My battery on my 2003 Pontiac Vibe is dead and I cannot shift out of Park and into Neutral to get my car out fo the garage to jump it... Suggestions?

Have you considered a portable battery booster? With the booster, you should be able to start the engine or at least energize your car's electrical system which will allow you to shift the transmission out of Park.

2005 Pontiac Vibe having trouble shifting 1st 2nd code P2716 MIL

This is most likely due to a bad solenoid pack in transmission. You could have tranny serviced and see if it helps. Poor fluid condition makes valves stick in those.
