The shift cable is off the lever on the trans...the dash indicator states drive but the shifter is in park. Look under the drivers side of the trans, next to the catalytic converter(make sure the truck is cooled off) the trans cable will not be attached to the tranny lever-re-attach and you will be able to get it home or to a shop for a repair. This happened to me already, simple fix.

Gear shifter won't shift into reverse or park

When you "muscled it into neural" you broke the shifter. Most likely it will take a replacement shifter to repair.

Ignition switch key lock solenoid passat

when you shut it off were the wheels cranked sideways-sometimes this puts pressure on the locking system and won't let it disengage-try moving the steering wheel back and forth while applying pressure to the key-I hope this helps-cheers Denny

Alternator froze up while driving causing the serpintine belt to brake now transmission wont go into any gear, i havn`t replaced the alt. or belt yet. any idea what happened to the trans? it was working...

You mean the shifter is stuck?, in park?or the shifter goes to each gear but the car wont move? If the shifter is stuck, check all fuses and be sure the brake lights operate.

I have a 2005 h2 and i went to put it in park and the shifter slid forward real easy with out pushing the button in. now the shifter handle is stuck in park but on the dash it says its in drive which it is...

Because of the computer set up - you will need to take it to the shop. If it is a rental or leased vehicle then the factory may have shut it down. Seen this happen.
Try this - take down the vin number and call the dealer - ask about recalls or any complications that concern the vin number you have.
This should get you pointed in the right direction.
