Question about Chevrolet Monte Carlo
My 2001 Monte SS shifter cable jammed up which prevented me from getting it back into park position, now its stuck in my driveway and wont start. I took my center console out, disconnected the cable from the shifter and from the top of the transmission under the hood. I'm trying to move the detent lever up by hand to engage it back into park, but it wont budge. Do I have to have my break pedal engaged or is the lever seized? NEED HELP ASAP!! THANKS!!
Don't know about needing the brake pedal pushed to get INTO park, but it might, as the pedal needs to be pressed to get it OUT of park.

SOURCE: Shift lever
It sounds like you may have a faulty shift interlock solenoid. It is under the center console. You can expose it and see if it is getting voltage when the vehicle is on and you foot is on the brake. If it is, replace the solenoid. If it isn't, you may have a faulty relay.

it can be done thru the front of the grille , locate the cable coming from the latch mecanism , and cut partially thru the cable to gain access to the inner cable that does the opening of the latch.
it takes a little time an it will be a bit frustrating but it can be done ! I hope all goes well with plowing !

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.

What you can try is to remove the shift cables from the transmission side. then move the shifter and see if everything is free if it's still sticks then the cables are going to be replaced. if everything is moving with the cable off. then you need to remove the shift tower on the tranny (where the shift cable is I belive it's 5 bolts) remove the tower and you will see the shift pin. Inside the tower there is a cotter pin that breaks and that will cause you to have one gear and unable to selected another gear. If you are not mech inclined I would no attemped the shift tower repaire, the cables do it will save you money. The shift tower has bushings that can fall into the tranny.

SOURCE: 2001 impala shifting issue
I have a 2001 base impala and 6 months ago I experienced the same problem. I was driving on the street and all of a sudden my car acted as if it was in neutral. I pulled over and neither of the shifts engaged. The dealership said that my torque converter went bad. Somehow the bad torque converter caused shavings to get into my transmission. They gave me a new torque converter and flushed my transmission. My transmission was almost 2 years old; therefore, it was under warranty.
