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.

SOURCE: gear shifter lock and car wont start

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:)

SOURCE: 1997 Lincoln Towncar. Shifter stuck in park

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.

The car will start but wont go in gear or the ignition won't turn all the way off


I am thinking your problems are one in the same you have a safety lock on your shifter that will not allow you to shift it from park unless you push down on the brake which then send a voltage signal to unlock your shifter but if the voltage is never sent you will not be able to shift it out of park. There is an emergency access through a small hole next to your shifter that you could put a screw driver in there and push down to unlock your shifter. Sometimes this hole has a small cover over that you need to remove. Check to see if your brake lights are working if not this could be the problem as the voltage needed to unlock your shifter usually comes from the brake switch down on the brake pedal let me know how it goes.

2004 dodge intrepid wont move out of park


Usually a problem with the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
You may be able to unlock the key switch without turning the switch on, then take the shifter out of park.

Shifter shows in park but in reverse, button will not let shifter work


Linkage adjustment. As for the button you will have to take shifter apart to unlock it. Car won't start as the switch is not being engaged. Some start up in neutral, don't know if yours does this.
