Blown fuse that control gear shift switch or Bad brake switch. This is a switch that mounted under dash to the top of the brake pedal that controls locking mechanism on shift. Its a safety feature, for example if the car was running and a kid gets in the driver seat he/she will not be able to put vehicle in gear with out stepping on Brake first. You should be able to shift lever manually by inserting key in KEY HOLE next to shift put key in hole and push down you should be able to move lever to at least move vehicle to shop or home. What you can do is Push key in hole put vehicle in N+ neutral start vehicle and then you should be able to put in D-drive with out key. Good Luck

Sounds like you need a new shift cable. That go from shifter down to transmission.

I drove my car home. It drives in Drive and


Fortunately, park is not a function of the real internal transmission workings. (like clutches, gears, bands etc) Likely your shift cable or linkage needs adjustment, or the cable may have stretched and needs replacement. Even if the problem is inside the transmission, most parking mechanisms can be serviced by just removing the pan, not the entire unit.

WIll not shift out of park


it could be a malfunctioning brake light switch on the brake pedal. this is the switch the allows the gear shift lever to be moved from one gear to the other. You should also check the switch for proper adjustment.
