Question about 2000 Dodge Durango
Wont allow shift into park adjusted all the way out have to start in neutral need to know how to cahang linkage
Not sure that this is the solution, but I found a work around on my Durango. If you take off the cover on the shifter there is a lever (button) that you can dislodge and the vehicle will release out of park. After I did this a couple of times, I haven't had the issue happen again.

SOURCE: WILL NOT SHIFT OUT OF PARK
I had the same problem (will not shift out of park) with my 03 Durango with column shifter, worked on it and found the issue to be a pin that comes out in the steering column to block the shifter when the truck is turned off in park. When you turn the truck back on the motion of the key switch is supposed to allow the pin to retract so you can shift. In cold weather mine acts up. It looks like the pin is retracted with a spring and there may be some grease in the system that hangs the pin up in cold weather. Cleaning the parts may be a fix but to get mine working I pulled the boot that surrounds the shifter lever out of place and then the pin can be seen. A push on the pin with the key on and it retracted so I could shift. I think I will just leave the boot out until it warms up and I can try some presserized oil free cleaner on the parts.

Same thing happened to me. I had accidentally kicked something while streching out my right leg. It turns out there is an actual switch somewhere up above your feet directly above the brake pedal area that I had toggled when streching my leg!
Because I knew that it must have been that I kicked something, I was reaching under there, above near the brake pedal and eventually, miraculously found a little switch, which when toggled again, allowed me to get the car out of park and drive away.
I have yet to find any reference to this in the owners manual or online yet, but it's a fact.
I tried to find the switch again a moment ago, but could not - had to get back into work as I had been stranded on the road for the last half hour.
