Are you stepping down on brake when attempting to shift out of park?
There is a release mechanism on the pedal. (if I remember correctly) If it has failed, you might try disconnecting it temporarily so you can drive the car. (likely it's a cable that goes to the shifter itself)

Shifter stuck in park


On some models there is a pin or clip you can press with a screwdriver to release the lock.
Usually you can unlock the shifter before you turn the key to the on position.
The brake switch or the shift lock solenoid would need to be tested.

there is a button right beside your shifter that will release the lock underneith the plastic arouns the shifter. remove the plastic rubber around the shifter and lift the plastic up. there will be a button you can press to release the shifter lock in cases of emergency. careful removing the plastic but may require some light prying action to get it off. hit the button with a srewdriver or key and move the shifter out of park. you will still need to be in park or neutral to start the car. the main problem is probably a park/neutral module, a bad shifter, or a brake pedal sensor

I parked the car and went start the car again now it is stuck in park it does start.


Do your brake lights work?
If not, check your fuse for them. You likely need to apply your brake to release the solenoid to allow the shifter to move.
Many vehicles had an manual override slot near the shifter you could push a key or small screwdriver down into to release it.
