SOURCE: Gear shifter
Sounds like just the brake-shift interlock getting stuck. I would try using the override to get the shifter working again, then use the parking brake to keep it from getting jammed in the future.
The parking brake will reduce the pressure on the gearbox, especially when parked on an incline. If the interlock continues to jam, you probably do need to have the shifter replaced.

Check the cable first with the car off go under it and see if it moves at the ****** have someone shift it from inside. Be sure the car engine is off. But the key on

check the bolts on the linkage going from the column to the transmission. probably just need tightening. (generally the bolt ON the transmission shift plate that connects into the transmission shaft is loose) Probably takes a 10 mm socket
