It is your shifter assembly. Should be able to take the trim panel off and use something to press the bypass switch to get it out of park. I've seen a bunch of these go bad.

My 07 Pacifica will start but won't move out of park. Just clicks. Was told it may be the neutral safety switch?

No it's not the park neutral safety switch . It's the shift interlock system or what ever Chrysler calls it . It's a safety feature that won't let the transmission shift into gear unless you have your foot on the brake pedal .
What just clicks - explain ?

2007 Chrysler Sebring will not shift out of park. We apply the brakes, but it still will not shift.

can you hear a slight click when applying brake?? if not interlock safty switch is bad, if so then best idea is something in shifter housing blocking it. OR cable issue

When I start my car I can not change gears out of park Chysler Sebring 2007 , today

These newer cars have a safety as part of the brake pedal system. Check along the brake pedal to see if the switch is misaligned or disconnected. This is to prevent someone from pressing the accelerator while taking the vehicle out park and causing an accident. Good luck

I had no problems with shifting my car into gear, but I went to it a couple days ago and would not move from Park. I tried the override to see if it would move but it still wouldn't work. Any suggestions.

The problem is in the brake switch. You have to have the brake pressed to get it out of park. When this switch goes bad then it doesn't think that the brake is being pressed. You will have to replace the switch. It is located on the top of the brake pedal up under the dash.

Gear shift will not shift out of park

If car has safety shift sensor verify is working properly, located at the brake pedal assembly under the dash. If you have to press the brake before shifting out of parking then you have this!

Seabring wont come out of park

check the fuses especially the one(s) for the brake lights. have someone stand in back of car and see if brake lights even work.when you step on brake pedal,you should be able to hear a "click" that is the shift release solenoid letting the shifter come out of park. u might also have a bad brake lite switch or broken/burnt wiring coming off the brake light switch.

08 Chrysler Sebring Transmission

I assume that you have to press the brake pedal in order to shift from park (ie:safety switch) you might first check to see if you have brake lights as they should be on the same circut and operated by the same switch. If the lights dont work, check the fuses could be a simple fix. Hope this helps
