Question about Dodge Charger
Moisture has gotten into the transmission and the ice crystals have thickened the transmission fluid. Either get it inside to a warm place or run an electric heater beneath the transmission to heat the metal and eventually, the transmission fluid. Once you get it to work, drain the old oil and replace the filter and the oil. Change both more frequently to prevent moisture buildup.

Assuming that the fluid is full, The symptoms you have indicate internal pressure loss within the unit. As time goes by, wear on the metal contact areas where seals ride, become worn. The seals themselves become somewhat brittle and especially in cold weather, sealing of fluid pressure becomes less than desired. Each time the transmission "flairs" on shifts some burning takes place on internal friction plates & clutches.Even with a fluid change, this condition cannot be corrected. Unfortunately, the unit must be rebuilt or replaced. In some mild cases an additive such as Lucas transmission sealer/conditioner can be used, but generally this is a "bandaid" not a permanent fix!

check to see if the brake lights come on it may be a problem with a brake switch under the dash not letting the shift lock release. there may be a seperate switch just for it so check and see it there is two switches touching the brake pedal lever if the brake lights come on.

sounds like the lock for it broke either from the button on the shifter or from the pedal its only plastic i would take the shifter cover off and try it then and look at all the peices too see what is not working
