I have the same problem. If you take the casing apart that surrounds the shiffter you can push the little pink lever in with your finger and shift it that way. You have to do it from the front left of the shifter where the cable goes into the shifter. It is called the shifter control module. The overide button doesn't work with this problem. Dodge just told me a new shifter was $30 and the are on back order.

Remove cup holder liner (rubber liner), stick your finger in the hole while attempting to shift out of gear. If this does not work, your tiny spring come off inside the assebly. I don't recommend buying a new one because it will just break again. There is a small pink (yes pink) lever with a small hook on it (or maybe not if it broke like mine) The spring pulls back the pink lever as you shift into reverse. If the spring is missing you will need to replace it. Just go to Lowes and buy a small one and cut it to size. You will need to drill a tiny hole in the pink lever to reattach it (much stronger than the original design). To access the assembly just unsnap everthing. The shifter knob pull straight up(do not twist but you can wiggle it a bit if needed). The shinny outer cover that blinds you while your driving just pull straight up. Take a credit card or small screwdriver to get it started and just pull it straight up. The rest is just clipped in and you should see the tabs to depress to release the PRNDL covers. The coil holder in front of the shifter just unsnaps as well. The outer cover that goes up around the cigerette lighter area just pulls straight toward you and unsnaps. No dager of breaking anything there. There are four nuts in the base of the assembly that bolt it to the floor (remove these so you can turn the assembly on it's side a bit). Look for the spring that should be attached to the pink lever on the left. If it's missing than your small hook broke like mine. Reattach a new one. You can shift it out of park by holding back on this pink thing while attempting to shift into reverse. There is a couple wire harnesses that I also had to disconnect.
Good job Chrysler!

There are no problems at this time that i know off but this is not good, i would call dodge and talk to someone about this, go over the dealers head and tell them you had a problem with it and the dealer fixxed it and now again another bad compressor,this may be due to a bad compressor, i have seen this before with other cars, a new compressor just goes bad, it could be poor manufactoring or if they had to cover this the first time they may have used a rebuilt comprosser which i have found to be junk for the most part, all you can do is try to see if dodge will help if not maybe have some other garage check it.good day.
