Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Bravada
If you take the center console apart and look at the shifting lever, you will be able to tell how it works and figure out what is happening with it. you have to push in on your brake pedal first, of course, and thta will actuate a solinoid in the center console. The solinoid may be faulty or you may have a pinched wire causing this.
You are not an idiot by any means I would guess. You should be able to figure this out. It is a pretty simple assembly.
If you are parking on a hill then you could be experiencing the transmission parking paw having pressure on it, which will cause you to not be able to shift out of park. If you are parking on a hill, I would suggest that you use your parking brake before you put your vehicle in park. This is take the pressure off the parking paw.
