Question about 2004 Pontiac Aztek
Have removed the cover & can move it manually, not sure what needs to be replaced
There are several possibilities why this happens. I'm sure you know a few of them but since the info in your request is limited, don't take offense if I state the obvious:
1) I assume you are not parked on a grade (if you are, you may have to get someone to gently push the vehicle uphill to take pressure off the parking pawl).
2) With the ignition in the ON position (or running), fully depress the brake. You should hear the solenoid click. This indicates that the shift lock control system is working. If you don't hear it, you could have a poor battery (but you probably would not be able to start the engine).
3) If the shift button still doesn't move, while applying the brake, push the shift lever firmly into the PARK position and see if the button frees.
4) As with a lot of other vehicles, there should be a lockout override button usually located at the base of the shifter on the engine side. With your foot on the brake, press and hold this button, then move the shifter out of PARK.

Hi, Check your brake lights, and other lights. On another truck of mine it did that and my brake lights were out so it locked the shifter until I fixed them. Hope you figure it out.
