it is either the shifter or the cable, I would go with a broken part in the shifter linkage. Detrim the steering column and see what shows up, very easy just 4 screw I think.

it sounds like your gearshift cable is broken..if you can jack up vehicle and support it safely,get someone to move shifter and look on driver's side of transmission and see if linkage is moving on trans..linkage is up near top of trans..i have seen this problem before

I use to Own the Same Vehicle, This seem to happen off and On. When it did I took both hands and PULLED like HECK to the Left at Same Time Pushed My Brake Pedal Down as Far as I could with the Vehicle Running.
These Vehicles have that built in Safety Device It will not Release the Gear Shifter until Brake Is Pushed Down.
To answer your Question on how much it will cost.That i'm not Sure, Depends on why your Shifter won't Release.
I Hope this helps you out,

The SHiFT lock is broken or not pulling up when u disengage the reverse and PARK!
SHiFT LOCK is the one in ur SHiFTiNG KNOB, when u try to release the PAR or going to reverse u have to pull/press it!
The only way you could release and check it, is by dismantling the whole shifting console, and check where it is disconnected or go to the nearest garage to fix on that!
Hope that helps u out!
