My friend lent me her car while shes on holidays and the button on the gear stick wont push in and i am stuck in park. its a 4 door hyundai, not sure of make but i think its around 1999. you have to leave...

the brake light switch controls the shift lockout solenoid. perhaps this brake light switch is ajar or misaligned or inoperative. check to see if brake lights are working. there is an override to the shift lever lockout.

When I turn the ignition switch on I often cannot get the stick shift to come out of Park. If I shift it out quickly it will often work but if I leave it to idle in Park for more than a few seconds it jams...

The ability to release the shifter from the Park position depends on the brake switch. You have to put your foot on the brake to take it out of park. You may have an problem with your brake lights as well. Have a friend look at your brake lights the whole time you have the pedal depressed and make sure they stay on. If they go off then the signal to release from park is stopping also.

2003 ford crown victoria with working brake lights but no parking or rear lights

Duplicate the issue ? You mean the lights are working now ?
The turn signals and brake light circuit is one and the same. The parking lights are on a different circuit. The parking lights get power from the headlight switch and don't travel thru the turn signal switch.
So have you checked the park fuse for power ?
The location of the fuse should be in your owners manual.

I parked my jimmy last night went to drive it today and it will not leave from the park possition. any ideas? matt

check and see if you have brake lights if not check the fuses for the brake lites .if ok go to the bulbs .whats is happening is that the shift release mechanism is not releasing .you may be able to override the mechanism by turning the key to the first position and try to move the shifter.

My 1995 Geo Tracker stuck in park

Try replacing your brake light switch that is located at the top of the brake pedal arm. It might work if you wiggle or shake the switch but most likely you will have to replace the switch. good luck leave comment.

It wont start turn key dash lights up nothing happens

sounds like a dead battery to start with. Not even enough juice in the battery to energize the solenoid / brake interlock to get it out of PARK. Hope this helps
