Check and see if the brake lights work, if not that is the problem (poss switch at brake pedal), the park position is locked out by a small pin that is pulled back by a electric solenoid that is activated when you step on the brakes, it is called the park interlock, and is a safety feature, if the brake lights do work you will need to drop the steering column and test for pwer to the park pull solenoid I just mentioned above, check the owners manual as well on this issue.

2000 regal won't go out of park


I would think it has something to do with
Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control System
The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consist of the following components:
• The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid.
• The automatic transmission park lock solenoid (Regal only).
• The automatic transmission shift lock control switch.
• The transmission range switch.

Regal
With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally-closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control and park lock solenoids. The transmission range switch provides a path to ground in the PARK position. With the automatic transmission shift lock control and park lock solenoids energized the shift lever is locked in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open. This causes the automatic transmission shift lock control and park lock solenoids to release. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position.
Do the brake lights work ? If not could be cause by bad brake light switch .

20% of the time I cant get key to lock into the lock position, dash lights go out,BUT ignition circuit is left on,its like trying to remove key,w car Not in park.Could it be the neutral safety switch?


No , it's not the park neutral switch , The park neutarl switch won't allow the vehicle to start if not in park or neutal , has nothing to do with turning off the vehicle . Problem with the shift lock contro system probably !
Park Lock Control System (Regal)
The park lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the ignition is OFF. The system consists of the following components:
• The automatic transmission park lock solenoid
• The brake to shift relay
• The body control module (BCM)
• The powertrain control module (PCM)
With the ignition in the OFF position the park lock control solenoid is de-energized. This mechanically locks the shift lever in the PARK position. With the ignition in the ON position, battery voltage is supply to the park lock control solenoid. The control circuit of the park lock solenoid is provided a ground through the brake to shift relay when energized. The body control module (BCM) supplies a ground for the brake to shift relay when the body control module (BCM) receives a class 2 message from the powertrain control module (PCM) indicating the transmission is in the PARK position. This closes the normally open contacts of the brake to shift relay and grounds the park lock control solenoid. This energizes the park lock control solenoid releasing the mechanical park lock.

Sorry , but your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

the batt is suspect...take it to autozone, or other place, they'll check it out free......the shifting out of park is a seperate issue, the pawl for the steering/shifter is not working properly....did you notice if the steering wheel would turn when the shifter is stuck?....probably not....when this happens try to turn the wheel back and forth-not hard but not gently- a little graphite dust sprayed in there would help.......hope this helps you out
