Sounds like your overdrive solenoid is dirty or broken. Take off the solenoid and clean it really well, put it back on and see if it works. If not you will have to replace it.
This happened to my fathers and I had to clean it.
Sometimes the tranny oil is so dirty that little bits of metal get stuck in the solenoid area and you have to scrape them off. You might want to do a tranny flush if it's bad.

If you remove the top plastic cover, there should be a flange bolt which holds a spring connected to the shift lever. Be careful with the over-drive button so you don't rip out the wires during disassembly. Loosen that flange nut, remove the spring, and lift off the bottom half of the shift knob.
Now you can remove the two screws at the front of the plastic shift assembly cover to replace it with your new one. Reassembly is reverse procedure---take your time and don't force---the plastic is like those stupid map pockets that shatter when torqued!

Your overdrive relay is bad,but its just as easy to bypass this relay,and never have this problem again IPB sales an bypass plate.

SOURCE: Gear stick stuck!
The spring mechanism inside the button probably malfunctioned. Same problem with mine, and the mechanic wants to charge a bomb to dismantle the entire console to fix the jammed button. So I just live with the problem by simply pressing the lock release button, the little red button above the 'P' letter, to release the gear stick shift from Park to Drive.
