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.

The Dodge Magnum and Charger shifters are having issues that result in being unable to shift from park.
There is a small plastic cog in the gear shift assembly that ends up going bad... if this is the case for you, you are not alone.
The dealer's remedy is to replace the ENTIRE shift assembly because they don't sell parts for it.
There is a company called "Billet technologies" and they sell a metal machined replacement part and they have links to illustrated replacement of the part. It does involve taking the console apart, and part of the radio bezel out of the car.
It's involved but it can be done... I recommend checking for any warranty first, then if you feel daring, you can order the part and have at it.
I personally own a 05 Magnum and the shifter is sticking now and then. We shut the car off and restart and sometimes it releases. I'm going to spray lube down the openings of the shifter to keep things freed up until I can replace the cog inside.
Hope this helps...

You have to take remove the little rubber change tray from under the ashtray then remove the two screws. Then take the chrome trim from around the gear shift and pop all the plastic from around the gear exposing the lower part of the hear shift. On the left side under the gear shift their is a pink plastic piece attached to a wire. Put your foot on the brake and as you move the gear shift you have to press down the pink piece to get it into gear. this just happended to me today, that assembly has to be placed because of the little pink piece.
