Question about 2003 Chrysler 300M
I suddenly can't get the key out of the ignition. Also happening at the same time is that I can move my shifter out of park and into any gear while stopped without pressing on the break or pressing the release button on the shifter. The car drives well and changes gears so I don't think it is the transmission

SOURCE: Car Won't Fully Shift into Park
You either have problem with the shifter assy, or the shifter cable has come out of adjustment.
If you remove the shifter bezel and center console you will be able to see the shifter cable. There will be a white or black lift tab on the cable. Release the tab and and place shifter in park. If it still does not go into park that means that you will need a shifter assy. If it goes into park with the tab released you push the tab back down with it still in park.
That should take care of your problem.

You should be able to hear the clicking in the shifter and the switch--I think this is normal cause when mine is stuck in park you CANT hear it.

If you're on an incline, that will affect it. Try setting the park brake prior to shifting to park. Also there is a cable/interlok safety system that prevents shifter movement out of park without the brake pedal being depressed, that may need adjustment. Also check under the hood see if the shift selector cable is routed close to the exhaust, it could be melting. And maybe the selector cable needs adjustment.
Good luck with that and let me know if there is anything more I can help with.

is the battery dead? If so then jump the battery. If not then please state if the the key will move, the vehicle will or will not start.
