When you turn ignition on it releases a cable that is attached to the shifter also the shifter has a solenoid attached to it that is released when you step on the brake. Both times that I had the problem of button stuck and cant shift out of park the solenoid was sticking and wouldnt release .

On most or possibly all newer vehicles you have to depress the brake pedal before shifting into drive or any other gear for that matter. There is a switch under the dash and connected to the brake pedal lever that sends a signal to the shifter to release and allow it to move into drive. It may even be incorporated with the brake light activation switch as well. You should be able to look at it and see if anything obious may be the culprit such as a lose or broken wire. Good luck!

Take a little WD-40 and spray beside the button with the straw. Work it back and forth the best you can to include a few smacks on the shifter itself. This will allow the lubricant to travel down the shaft of the shifter also. This should take care of it. Let me know.

The release mechanism behind the ignition switch, sometimes it
gets caught with dirt, clean it out and should be okay.-------------
There is a "plunger" as part in the
ignition. Under the steering wheel there is a small removable cap that you can
take off and put a small screw driver up into and press the plunger in and it
will release the key. There is some electrical conection between the
shift lever and the ignition.
Small hose clamp around bottom of the plunger housing just under the plunger. Adjust as necessary. Key will come out no problem.-----------
But if the same problem repeats again n again then its ignition switch on shifter problem.
