Question about 1998 Cadillac Catera
There is a lock out. It will only come out of park with your foot on the brake pedal. As you press the brake you should hear a small click by the shifter. If its not working, there is an override that should be near the shifter. It might have a plastic cover on it, but once you find it you can stick a key in the hold and release the lock-out. Check your owners manual as it will have explicit instructions on how it works.

HI, there is a solenoid(switch) that's located in shift linkage housing that works in conjunctions with the brake pedal when you shift from park to reverse or drive. this is a safety situation.
Sometimes, this solenoid(switch) can malfunction or die. In this case, it will prevent the gear shift lever from moving into the reverse or parked position. Simply replacing this shift lever solenoid will fix this issue. You can expose the solenoid by disassembling the shift stick housing,
Please rate and have a great day:)

SOURCE: transmission shifting problems
You need to have it checked out by a mechanic as soon as possible, I drive a 2000 cadillac catera and it began to have the same problems about 4 months ago but last month my sport mode button began to blink which means a transmission problem. So when i had it looked at they said my 3rd gear was almost completely burnt out and it cost $2,000 to fix. The cause was a broken piece of the transmission was failing and it had to be completely rebuilt. Good luck!!

Has to be done by a dealer or a locksmith with the proper GM Tool, and also has to be the correct part and remote number.
