Question about 2007 Chrysler Sebring Sedan
Started car and i could not get out of park
I popped the ring off around the shifter. I have a 2008 Sebring. Inside the shifter are two pink colored pieces of plastic. I used a screwdriver to the one on the left and pushed it back towards the rear of the car. I pushed as far back as I could go and the shifter went out of Park as easy as could be. I hope this helps!

There is a return spring on the left side of the shifter which has broken off. it attachs to the black hosing of the shifter and the other end attachs to the pink upper sliding pivot to the shifter interlock. drill a small hole on the pink part and reattach the spring by opening one side and fishing it threw the hole.

Most likely it is a brake switch.
refer to your fuse box under the dash or under the hood ( front left of vehicle from the driver's seat*) and using your vehicles manual locate, the BOO switch or Brake on off switch. Or just brake switch. And inspect the fuse for an open( blown) If it is O.K then perform a visual inspection of the brake lights when applying the brake.
Simple to replace,most problematic switch.
But before you start.
To ensure that it's this switch please have an assistant Apply the brake and visually inspect that your brake lights illuminate. If they do then this switch is not Faulty.
Thank you for your post.Good Luck, Any other questions do not bother to ask.

If the shifter is on the floor there is usually a release cable that connects to the brake pedal. Requiring that the brake is pressed before shifting out of park. With it not running, the radio off and the key on step on the brake and listen for a noise. Its possible the cable broke for the release system. As well as look under the dash at the top of the pedal and look for a cable that runs towards the radio, see if you can pull it and shift out of park, it might also just need adjusting.

Try removing the trim around the selector and see what is jamming it - there's usually a brake interlock that keeps the car in Park until the brake pedal is held down (this activates a switch on the brake pedal arm, which disengages the lock). The way I see it, you either have a faulty brake pedal switch, or the lock itself is jammed. Look in there and see if it's something that shouldn't be there - if the shifter is being held in place by a device that is part of the car, chances are the brake pedal interlock switch failed. If you have a pretzel or something in there, well, there's your solution:)

There is a switch mounted on the arm of the brake pedal (under a plastic cover held on with 3 plastic push-pins). There is an electical connection attached to this switch. In my case one of the wires had broken and was not supplying electricity to the switch. By fixing the broken wire it allowed the shifter to properly move and got the brake lights working again.
