SOURCE: My shift release lock is stuck
the gear shift lock probably needs wd-40 squirted into the assy on the gear shift knob if that doesnt work you may need to take it off and spray it, on thekey not working, when you try to turn the key, move the steering wheel either way and see if the key will turn then, sometimes the wheel will be in a tight lock position

You seem to have two (2) separate problems one may be a BAD brake light switch this switch is mounted at the top of BRAKE pedal and control the locking mechanism on gear shifter(safety component-for example if a kid is sitting in seat with vehicle running he/she will NOT be able to put vehicle in gear without stepping on brake). The other problem is a BAD shifter cable-this cable moves the selector in the transmission when you move shift knob. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

When you open the hood, remove the plastic clips. they're should be around 5 or 6 of them. after that they're are 2 10mm screws on the bottom of your car. remove those. After you remove those. Then at the end where the fender connects to the bumper on both sides they're are 2 phillip screws.

u will need to check and make sure the brake lights work, the shifter is tied to the brake light switch, if the brake lights don't work or the brake pedal is not pushed a gear shifter lock out is engaged, this is a Federally mandated safety feature.
