There is a switch nicknamed a BOO switch. It is on the brake lever under the dash. This is often adjustable and controls the brake lights and the release for the gearshift. When properly adjusted it makes the rear lights come on as soon as the brake pedal moves. There is a release for the gearshift that uses a solenoid so even if you get the brake lights to work, a bad gearshift solenoid may keep the Park locked.

Wont shift from park


Check to see if brake lights work. The safety system uses a switch on the top of the brake pedal lever to prevent shifting out of Park without putting your foot on the brake.

If you lose the signal from this switch, it will not come out of Drive. Often the drivers' foot hits and moves or breaks this switch. Look under your dash to inspect this part.

Once you get the brake lights working, it should shift out of Park.

Gear shift stuck in park and can't push in the button. 2006 Chevy Impala SS


this is a shot in the dark since could be many things, but check the brake light switch, you have to put on brake to shift from park, had this happen on a ford ranger once, the switch worked under light pressure as far as lights were concerned but required heavy pressure to shift
