I dont believe there are any speeds above 75mph that are legal here in the States. So that may not be a priority to worry about.

SOURCE: cant get 06 buick lucerne

You have a transaxle shift lock on your vehicle which as I'm sure you know the brakes nust be applied in order to shift out of park. The switch could be bad or if your battery is below 9 volts this will happen. Most cars have a spot where you can stick a key or a screwdriver in to bypass it. Guess what? you don't on your vehicle but there is a way to bypass it and it will work about 90 percent of the time. Apply the brake and then try to shift normally. If it won't shift (which is your problem in the first place) ease of on the pressure as far as trying to shift but don't let a go. Push the lever foward GENTLY as if you are putting it in park all the way. Keep the brake pedal pushed in at all times while you are doing this. After you gently "put it back in park" then try to change gears. No jerking motions just nice and smoothly do it. This is the only way it will work unless you get down and do electrical kind of bypassing on the switch which would be very hard for me to explain because I don't have the wire color codes and stuff to give you. I do hope this works and good luck.

SOURCE: shifter on floor of my

have another shop look at it, it should not be this expensive unless there is major damage to the shifter assembly. usually just the park lock solenoid is bad thats not very expensive. let us know how it goes. you might be able to pop loose the metal rod from this small black solenoid under the shifter yourself, but then it will defeat the safety features of the shifter. getting off the console to get to it might be more work than you want to do though.

SOURCE: 2008 Buick Lucerne cannot get out of park

You are reffering to manually taking a screwdriver to release the shifter i take it....if so, you are probably not getting in far enough to hit the release.
