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.
Regards,

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.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Focus shift button stuck in 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...

Check your brake lights, if they are not working then the shift will not unlock.

Shifter interlock


what car, you never said? NOR YEAR?
park lock out feature;. its broken , they do that. (BTSI system)
got A/T? or M/T both auto and stick shift have lockout.

no car/year, you get the generic answer.
there is a park lockout DEFEATER on most cars, (never on new cars,due to federal bs)

on the shift console, see the defeat device.
the operators guide covers this. its for EMERGENCIES.
pick one.
http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/jeep/

the A/T box,
Brakes + handle button press, unlocks BTSI

on 2005 and up , no bypass
if the key gets locked too, that tells you what is bad , on newer jeeps
on newer jeeps read this
http://www.lostjeeps.com/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=366251

this feature (pain) has many failure points.
any cable that jams, there are 2 , one to tranny or ignition
switch. and the brake solenoid unlocker in shift handle.
and the button, to unluck shifter, brake switch (no brake lights/)
to diagnosis it is easy , dismantle the console at shifter
then disconnect cables to find if one is stuck, (easy huh?)
and defeat the solenoid, by hand or 12v applied. and check the button
that it does in fact release.
NOT PARK LOCKOUT: (for if not on flat ground?)
reason 2 , driver, parked on a hill with tire to curb and did so
not setting brakes first (or bad ebrake ) and now the tranny parking
pawl is jammed , opps. so wiggle the steering and wiggle shifter,
or have some one push car forward (parked up hill on right) to release
parking pawl. (or gorilla it, ask bubba to muscle it out of park.)
if down hill , well, you get the idea..... pain.. gotta love A/Ts not.
Folks in Sanfranciso, just roll eyes at you, new in town>?

now the grand cherroke,, why not post car model, and year, dang.

Brake/Transmission Interlock Manual Override Your vehicle may be equipped with a shift lock manual override. The manual override may be used in the event that the shift lever should fail to move from PARK with the ignition switch in the ON position and the brake pedal pressed. To operate the shift lock manual override, perform the following steps: 1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position without starting the engine. 2. Firmly set the parking brake. 3. Using a flat-bladed screwdriver, carefully remove the shift lock manual override cover, which is located on the PRNDL bezel. 4. Press and maintain firm pressure on the brake pedal. 5. Using the screwdriver, reach into the manual override opening. Press and hold the shift lock lever down. Interlock Manual Override end quote.

Looking for Brake-shift interlock override


Unable to shift out of park on very hot days in my Mazda6 2003, was becoming a serious problem this summer.....there is no override button/key on this model. I had it to the Mazda dealership five times before the problem was corrected! Initially the wrong diagnosis was made and replacement of something connected to the brake did not correct the problem. Finally, the shifter was replace and the problem was solved. $$$ Seems like there have been many different electrical problems with this model....some under warranty, some not. I will not ever buy another Madza.......there is no excuse to design a car without an override button or key! ( It was scary to be stuck on sweltering hot days not being able to get out of park.....had I ever had my grand babies with me when this happened, I would have been desperate.)

Can't shift gear


check the fuse for your brake lights, check your brake light switch. If the brake lights don't go on your car will not shift out of park. The shifter should have an override button. look for an access hole (cover) near the shifter, pop the cover off and push a pencil down there to shift. check your owners manual for specific information on the use of the override button

no override button. if all the fuses are good, then if i remember there is a switch by the shift lever that when you step on the brake it enables you to move the shifter.good luck

The button on the shift selector will not push in there for you can't take it out of park


I had this happen to me recently. On my car it was the Park/Neutral Switch. My shift button would not push in because the switch didn't recognize the brake was being depressed. The switch is the problem, on my car a very expensive fix. The work around is an override button usually found near the gear shift lever, you may need to remove a cap to access it. Once you have access just take a flat head screwdriver, stick it in the access hole and press the override switch, while the switch is pressed move your shifter out of Park. From this point on the car will shift normally until in Park again. I plan to get mine fixed in the spring; until then getting out of Park is a two hand job.

2006 Monte Carlo


Here's how to override the shift lock on a 2006 Monte Carlo. First, remove the top of the shift console by pulling up on the plastic piece directly in front of the hinged cover. This is the piece that has the cup holders molded into it and it is held in place by 4 clips (i.e. it will pop back into place with no tools).

Next, shine a flashlight down into the console to the right of where the shift lever passes through (passenger's side). You'll see a wiring clip with 4 or 5 wires going into it. Directly behind this clip you can see a metal shaft with a flared top that looks like a button. This is the shift lock override button. Reach in behind the wiring clip with your right hand and press this button in. With the engine running, hold the button in with your right hand, press on the brake, and shift out of park with your left hand.

Now you can drive the car to your mechanic (or to your own garage) to find out why the shift lock solenoid is not working. On mine it was obvious. A wire going into that clip near the override button came loose and there was no power to the shift lock solenoid. I removed the clip, reattached the wire, and replaced the clip. Problem solved, fixed for free!
