Question about Cars & Trucks
Replacing the computer won't fix anything if there is sensors triggering a fault If you punch in google the code number (called an obd2 code) it will tell you what sensors are being triggered usually it will turn out a misfire or o2 sensor it will always trigger if the sensor is faulty as for the shifting i couldn't tell you check the codes on google

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.

Have the EXACT same problem. 2005 Pt Cruiser w about 88,000 miles. Became hard to shift when cold and then bam ....something broke. Moves freely. I know I'm going to get screwed on this... what should it cost to have it fixed. The guy at a shop close by (figured close to make towing easier) started into this 'its a dealer only part and blah blah...at least an hour .... " He's going to send an estimate tomorrow. I'm in E. metro Atlanta

Replace the shift lock solenoid whichis located by the shifter inside the truck.It keeps the shifter locked in place until you press the brake pedal to shift

The end of the shift cable has broken, there is a plastic ring at the transmission end of the cable that breaks. You will need to have it towed to the mechanic.

Check your brake lights, if the system doesn't get a brake lights on signal it will not release park, it is called the park lock system.
