Are you parked on a hill with the parking pawl stuck? If so you must move the car to relieve the stress.
It could be just wear, how many miles on it?
If you can find the linkage on the tranny perhaps you can release it there.

CSP, It sounds like you have a vacuum leak that is causing the IAC ( idle air control ) motor to move in and out trying to control the idle. Check all vacuum hoses on the engine for disconnect, cracked or damaged. If the hoses crack when you bend them, they need to be replaced.
Let me know what you find and we can go from there.
Regards,

SOURCE: 95 cadillac eldorado engine stalls rough idle check engine light is on

My son has this same car with the same problem. So far after tune up and other process of illimination, the problem points to the catalytic converter. If it is clogged you will get this problem with the rough idle and stalling. Look under the car at night after running it and see if the catalytic glows red. If so you need a new one. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I cant start my cadillac eldorado 95 it says

Go around the car to the passenger side, and insert the rounded door key in the door, then lock and then unlock the door with the key. This should disable the anti-theft system. This also will shut off the horn blowing when the alarm is tripped. This works on all older Cadlillacs. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: cannot shift my 99 cadillac

You might have a bad transmission/brake interlock switch. First, try rocking the vehicle back and forth to see if that frees it up. If this doesn't work, then the most likely cause is a failed interlock switch. They are usually located in the steering column. Some of them are fairly easy to change depending on your level of experience. Check out a new one at the parts store if your not sure what it looks like. I hope this helps you.

Why is transmission stuck in park?


Probably the shift release solenoid or the switch or relay that activates it. This solenoid usually activates when you press the brake pedal, releasing the shifter. There is usually an emergency release button that can be accessed to release the shifter in the event this occurs. Check you users manual for the location of the release and how to activate it.

How do i manually unlock gear shifter


If you cannot shift out of PARK (P), ease the pressure on the shift lever. Push the shift lever all the way into PARK (P) as you maintain brake application. Then move the shift lever into the gear you want. If you are still having a problem shifting, then have your vehicle serviced soon.

When this happens check the brake lights, are they on when the pedal is pressed? If not that is the problem.Your car has a park lock system, it is released by pressing the brake pedal but the lights must work or the Park lock solenoid is not powered up and doesn't release the shifter from park position.
