Can't shift from park, button is hard to push in.

Hello, I have a mitsubishi Galant 2003 and the button to take the car out of park is very difficult to move. Once able to get it into reverse or drive, it works fine. The button only gets stuck moving from park. What should I do.

Press the brakes down hard and leave it there for a while and keep pressing the gear button and eventually you'll be driving

Button difficult to depress to shift out of park

Is it a floor shifter? If so i wouldnt have used wd40.. It collects dust and contaminants. If anything on moving plastic to metal parts like that or plastic to plastic a silicone lubricant is more preferable. Its likely time for a new shifter Knob is where i would start. There should be either an oversized staple looking peice that retains the knob on the shifter itself, or it could possibly screw off as well.

Mitsubishi 2000 Galant GLS Inadvertently refuses to access reverse. Mitsubishi have recently replaced clutch ... no improvement. This is like a complete block on entering reverse, but will enter if...

Check the gear linkages for wear at all the joints and connections. Check for worn or missing rubber or nylon bushes or loose connector ends. Have someone hold the gear shift input into the box and move the gear lever, there should be minimal movement except in the neutral position and then only left to right.
