The car is probably on a steep hill and a lot of pressure is on the park pawl in the automatic transmission. If this is the case, a hard sudden pull should release it. Make sure the brake is on. When parking on a hill in the future use the parking brake before placing the lever in park.
Depending on your engine size ( i think there are 4 possibilities that year) there might be or you can look into removing the compressor and installing a thing called an A/C delete pulley. They are cheap (compared to a compressor, very cheap) and made to serve exactly your purpose.
check the fuses especially the one(s) for the brake lights. have someone stand in back of car and see if brake lights even work.when you step on brake pedal,you should be able to hear a "click" that is the shift release solenoid letting the shifter come out of park. u might also have a bad brake lite switch or broken/burnt wiring coming off the brake light switch.
when mine stopped working,the right speaker, i removed the door panels then swapped the speakers. and still the right speaker didnt work. so i got a radio from a junkyard and installed it. and now all speakers work fine.
