Question about 2006 Chevrolet Aveo
The shift lock solenoid works in conjuntion with the brake pedal switch. Try pushing down on the brake pedal a little harder than normal and see if you can shift it out of park.
If that does not work, the solenoid or electrical circuit to the solenoid has failed.
It could be as simple as a loose electrical connection at the solenoid at the shifter.
Let me know and we can go from there.

He's right with the whole solenoid thing cause mine is doeing the exact same thing... i do kno the temporary fix for it it turn your car on and set the parking break. turn your car off and and shift it into nuetral. turn your car back on apply the break turn off parking break and shift into the gear your want. this unlocked mine for a couple months, but now its to the point where i have to get it fixed or use a flat headed screw driver to depress the lock when shifting out of park.

Had the same problem; brake lights worked, too. It freaked me out at first as I was far from home when it happened, but I used the override to get back out of park for a couple days (it's under that "dime sized cover" like snorkelboby said). I asked a mechanic who also thought it was a solenoid issue but turns out, my brakes shoes needed replaced and I haven't had the problem since. I assume since you have to apply the brakes to shift, it must have been the worn shoes...
