Re: 2006 Chevy HHR wont shift out of park
The sensor is at the top of the pedel shaft. You should be able to push in the button with your finger. Push it in and listen for a click. if you dont hear a click then check the sensor wires for cuts or exposed copper. If thats good then the sensor needs to be replaced.

Because later model vehicles must have footbrake firmly pressed down, if you are doing this, there is a sensor located at brake pedal pivot that would cause this problem. Fairly simple to change with simple tools. The contact sensor is available at local part stores and need not be purchased from the dealer.
Usually this is caused by the circuit board which is part of the
bezel.Ford has a technical service bulletin out on this.Here is a copy
of the TSB
FLOOR MOUNTED SHIFTER STUCK IN PARK
Publication Date: January 13, 2006
LINCOLN: 2005-2006 Navigator
ISSUE: Some 2005-2006 Navigators may exhibit the floor shifter stuck in
Park due to an electrical system concern or by damage from liquid
ACTION: Follow the latest online Workshop Manual diagnostics in section
307-05. If diagnostics lead to an inoperative brake shift interlock
circuit board which may have been damaged due to liquid intrusion. The
brake shift interlock circuit board is located on the bezel. Replace
only the bezel assembly, current service parts contain all liquid
diverter design changes. Do not replace the entire shifter assembly.
NOTE: DAMAGED CAUSED BY LIQUID INTRUSION IS NOT COVERED UNDER THE NEW VEHICLE LIMITED WARRANTY.

Hope this helps and just keep in mind that your feedback is important
and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some
testimonial comment about this answer.
For a quick fix to get it to shut off and not go anywhere, drop it into Reverse, which should equal neutral, assuming your shift lever has somehow skipped up one gear. Pull the parking brake, and then, try and find someone who specializes in re-linking a transmission. I've got to admit I'm no good at doing this for automatics.
If the vehicle does not shift out park after stepping on brake pedal twice , I would suggest checking all electrical fuses,If after stepping on brake pedal twice allows you to move shifter then the problem is likely caused by a slow operating(Brake Pedal Shift Interlock). Contact your local dealer for part and replacement .Most Service dealers will explain that your vehicle has a Brake Pedal Shift Interlock that operates slower & silent by design which is true. The updated B.P.S.I. engages and disengages interlock faster. Once part has been replaced confirm problem is solved,tests drive vehicle and enjoy your day. Good luck with you vehicle.
This time only, your dealer is right. The sound is the Brake to Shift Interlock (BTSI) solenoid releasing the shift lever when you apply the brake. The sound is normal and won't hurt anything but I understand your concern.
Changing the pads is very straight forward and is no different from any other disc brake equipped vehicle. However, if you have never changed disc brakes before I would NOT recommend you do so on you HHR without either a shop or technical manual. Changing the rotors is very easy - they slide off the mounting studs once the disc calipers are removed.
