Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt
Re-attaching the knob to the gearshift is the key...Look for a hole on the lower section of the knob...if you cannot see it...remove the bottom chrome piece from the knob, (pry apart carefully not to scratch the chrome housing...you should see the small hole normally includes a small allen insert screw or Phillips screw...must be screwed in to the gear shift shaft to hold in place...if you cannot compare...visit a local salvage yard to experiment..."Pic A Part" is a national self help salvage yard. Hope this helps. If the button does not stay in the gear shift knob...you can replace the knob (with button) only...remove the knob as described above. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2005 Impala - shifting hard
trans fluid sounds low. drive it around,get it hot, park it on level ground and check it while it's in park. check your manual just to make sure the procedure is as i listed it. that's the normal method but you never can be too sure.

SOURCE: hard shifting Impala, sometimes.
Sounds like the vacumn modulator isn't connected. Like the hose has come off, or there is a tear in the hose. (4t60-E transmission)
4t65-E transmission is a different ballgame. Check the electrical connector to the side of the tranny. Make sure it's plugged in tight, and there is no corrosion on the connectors. Past this point it's time to check sensors. WSS, (Wheel Speed Sensor), and VSS, (Vehicle Speed Sensor)
Make sure these connections aren't corroded, and are on tight on both transmissions.
(Don't know which one you have. 4t60-E, or 4t65-E. I suspect you have the 4t60-E. It will state this on the transmission oil pan in raised letter/numbers)

this is a shot in the dark since could be many things, but check the brake light switch, you have to put on brake to shift from park, had this happen on a ford ranger once, the switch worked under light pressure as far as lights were concerned but required heavy pressure to shift

SOURCE: Impala won't shift into park
to get the key out just set the parking brake and put in neutral, but i agree with the first solution probably bad selector cable or linkage.
