Question about 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan
I turned my vehicle on and attempted to shift my vehicle out of park and into reverse, but the gear shifter would not move. I could hear clicking and when i depressed the button to shift it felt was if it was stuck. I was able to press it in but not all the way to shift gears. I then open the emergency hatch and pressed down the button to manually shift the vehicle into reverse. I was able to move the shifter to reverse neutral and park with no problems but as soon as i place it in park it gets stuck unless I hit the button to release it and move it
Check your brake lights, if the system doesn't get a brake lights on signal it will not release park, it is called the park lock system.

In the event of an electrical failure, the vehicle can be shifted out of PARK by using the following procedure.
1. Turn the key to the ACC or ON position. 2. Remove the liner to the cubby bin to the right side of the shifter. 3. Depress the BTSI override (2) on the side of the shifter assembly (1). 4. While the override is depressed, move the shifter out of the PARK position. 5. Return the cubby bin liner to its original location.

SOURCE: dodge magnum gear shift
I had the same problem. The interlock was not the problem. I had the shifter replaced (at my own expense because drive train warranty would not cover). After examining the old shifter discovered source of problem is a plastic cam on the front of ths shifter. A tiny PLASTIC ear which connects to a small spring had broken off. I repaired this by putting in a small screw where the ear had been. Incidentally, my tow truck driver had also seen the same problem on several Chrysler 300s. In my estimation this is a poor design on Chrysler's part.

I had the same problem, drove home just like you did, took it to my mechanic and he changed the "speed sensor " problem solved. "

Sounds like the shifter linkage needs adjusted. There is a neutral saftey switch that prevents the car from being started in any foward or reverse gear. If the shifter linkage is out of adjustment, the neutral safety switch will give you starting problems.
