Some models (Not sure about your Suzuki.) have a solenoid that unlocks the shifter when the brake pedal is depressed. If you are able to eventually get it out of park, it may just need cleaning and lubrication. I had one in the shop that was really gummy and found out that soda pop had been spilled on the console. Remove the boot, and get the mechanism exposed, then clean all the "gunk" from around the mechanism and spray a lubricant on the placed where the lock slides in and out of the mechanism. Since I'm not sure how or what the Suzuki uses, you're sort of on your own, but I hope this is of some help. Best of luck.

I have a suzuki xl7 2002 and the gear shift is locked in the park position and will not move, what can i do? ive tried the release under the shifter but it still locks back in park when i park it.

you may have lost power to/or have a bad shift interlock solenoid. the solenoid is what releases the gear shift when the brake pedal is applied. you may want to check the brake light switch to make sure it is working correctly.
