Question about Toyota Tundra
Pulled to a stop and attempted to shift from Drive into Park. The transmission felt a little - I don't know - slippery, I guess, and it didn't quite engage park but also wasn't in reverse, just somewhere in between. Eventually got it to engage park after really shaking it around a bit and rolling my truck a few inches either way, turning the wheel. But it's still a little sketchy between Park and Reverse. What could be the issue?
This will hopefully be the shift cable or related linkage. Disconnect the shift cable from the transmission and inspect both the cable the linkage on the transmission, for damage. There should be zero play on both. Please let me know what you find and if you have any other questions, good luck.

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear
Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

The problem that I could see is the transmission/shift solenoid. The solenoid thing is located inside the transmission. The repair
should run $200-$250 or there abouts. If you don't fix it quickly
though, you will wreck the transmission and you don't want to know how
much that costs!
You may also contact the manufacturer for second opinion.
Hope this helps and have a great evening!

It's a fuse issue. Part of the shift interlock system.
If the radio is also not working, it's the cigarette lighter fuse. This one fuse controls the cigarette lighter, the radio, and the shift interlock system. It's in the kick panel fuse box on the driver's side.
If it's not that fuse, it's the "Stop" fuse in the same panel. Both blown fuses create the same behavior.
Easy fix! Don't bother with a mechanic. If the fuse continues to blow, take it to be checked.
