    I had the same issue. on the shifter assembly there is a little pink tab that breaks very often. You have to take apart the shifter assembly and you can remove that tab. It will allow you to shift without pressing the brake but it will fix the issue.

How can i get it to shift to neutral

You need to post what make of vehicle this is and whether it is an Automatic or stick shift.

In general, the brake pedal must be pressed for an Automatic to be shifted away from Park. In most stick shifts, the neutral is available after pressing in on the clutch.

For Automatics requiring the pressing of the brake pedal, an interlock switch is on the brake pedal lever under the dash. The switch can be knocked out of place by feet or even broken by the drivers feet striking it.

The idea is for the gearshift and brake pedal to be "interlocked" so the brakes are applied before the gearshift can be moved. This requires the shift linkage to be adjusted or "timed" to line up for the electric signal produced by the brake pedal switch. There is also a similar system to prevent the starter from working when the gears are not in Park or neutral.

In the case of a car like a Corvette, you would push down on the stick shift before the trans will engage neutral. This was made so you would not be able to over rev the engine by missing a gear.

I hope that one of my solutions works for your unknown vehicle.

I have an 06 charger that is stuck in park,I have tried the red reset button to no avail.I was wondering if there are any other solutions.

There is probably an electric switch on the brake pedal , it won't let you shift out of park unless it senses that your foot is on the brake. If the switch/sensor is kaput it doesn't know that you are on the brake.

How do you remove rear brake drums on a 2005 dodge caravcan

That can be a very tough problem. Try to release the parking brake cable tension by disconnecting the cables where they split to the two rear wheels. Next you may try to stick a screwdriver through the hole in the backplate of each wheel and engage the star wheel of the automatic brake adjuster and turn it backwards to release the tension on the brake shoes. This can be a big problem because there is little room to lift the automatic brake lever enough to allow the star wheel to turn. Try to find some pictures of the rear brake assembly so you can see what you're dealing with when you stick the screwdriver into the hole. Essentially, you will working blindly, so you need to have some mental/visual model of what you are doing. If you are successful in the above steps, the drum will come off easily.

How to adjust parking brake. do you need to take anything apart?

You cannot adjust the cables on a minivan manually. the tension is automaitcally adjusted by the self adjuster on the pedal release.

The park brake cables on this vehicle have an automatic self adjuster built into the park brake pedal mechanism. When the foot operated park brake pedal is in its released (upward most) position, a clock spring automatically adjusts the park brake cables. The park brake cables are adjusted (tensioned) just enough to remove all the slack from the cables. The automatic adjuster system will not over adjust the cables causing rear brake drag.

Due to the automatic adjust feature of the park brake pedal, adjustment of the parking brake cables on these vehicles relies on proper drum brake.

When the park brake pedal is applied the self adjuster is by-passed and the pedal operates normally to engage the park brakes.

When a service procedure needs to be performed on the park brake pedal or the park brake cables, the automatic self adjuster can be manually locked out by the service technician.
