I had the same problem today, I can't believe all the Chryslers with the same problem on here. The manual release would not let it go into neutral either. I found a hot pink connector to the left of the gear shift that had broken, it appears to be where the brake release cable connects. I used a screwdriver to pull back on it until it let me shift it. Now if I can figure out how to get to it to work on it, I think I can replace it myself.

How to I repair my shift gears on my Chrysler 2007 Sebring? It's stuck in park.

I assume this is a floor shift,remove shifter knob, pry the trim around the shifter up to remove to get to the 2 screws there, in the storage compartment there may be 4 screws, pull Ebrake up as far as you can then rear of console upward over ebrake handle then back,remember you have to reverse what you just did to put it back together. If your after the shift cable try to pop it off the trans first to see if it can be moved out of park at the trans if so more likely is the cable if not you may have internal trans problem.

2007 Chrysler Sebring will not shift out of park. We apply the brakes, but it still will not shift.

can you hear a slight click when applying brake?? if not interlock safty switch is bad, if so then best idea is something in shifter housing blocking it. OR cable issue

My 2007 seabring won't shift out of park... Car

The car is probably on a steep hill and a lot of pressure is on the park pawl in the automatic transmission. If this is the case, a hard sudden pull should release it. Make sure the brake is on. When parking on a hill in the future use the parking brake before placing the lever in park.

Thats quite common on 2007-2008 models. You should have received a letter from Chrysler Corp. addressing this issue. (I did). The y said to take it to your nearest Chrysler dealer and they will fix it free (parts & labor). They will install a clip to reinforce the mechanism that assist this button to release it from park. Mine has not failed yet on my 2008, but it did on my son-in-laws 2007 (after his warranty expired) But he never recieved a letter. Your car might have to still be under warranty...........Good luck.

2007 chrysler sebring will not shift out of park. Yes I pressed on the brake. I'm thinking it's the transmission safety switch. Anyone know where this is locate on the car and how much it costs?

It is your shifter assembly. Should be able to take the trim panel off and use something to press the bypass switch to get it out of park. I've seen a bunch of these go bad.
