I had the same problem on my 2007 dodge caliber. If you look in the manual there are some directions for this, but simply, next to your gearshift on the passenger side there is a circle in the dash. Pry this out and there is a lever to release the shifter. You will need to probably replace a switch that attaches to the upper part of your brake.(It is a cheaply made part with plastic) I can't think of the name of it right now. It cost me about $17 at the dodge dealership for the part. It only takes about 10 minutes to repair, but you should get a mechanic to do it because it has to be adjusted correctly or the part is worthless. I hope that this helps! (you may have already figured it out since it's been 10 days since you posted)

SOURCE: Gear shifter is stuck on

PERMANENT FIX that doesn't cost a dime or require any tools. It happened to me by accident. Break the detante by moving the gear selector while holding the manual override lever (plastic lever inside the access hole). Once it is gone no matter what the brake switch calls for (lock gear selector or not) the gear selector will always be movable because the mechanical locking mechanism is no longer there. TADA!!! So what if you no longer have to depress the brake pedal in order to change gears. Call it a retro fix.....!

2007 chysler caliber shifter will not come out of park


Check your brake lights are working first as this can cause that problem, the brake switch could be defective causing the shifter to lock.
There is an override but only used in emergency to get you to garage or home.
Down the right side of shifter there is a cover or removable plug about the width of a finger so you can press the release button inside.
Safety systems getting too "safe".

My gear shifter gets stuck in park..on my 2008 dodge caliber


All cars have a release button on the shift column for towing. Look for a little square or circle nee your shifter that you can pop the plastic piece off of. Usually you can stick a key or somethin to press the button down and put the car into any gear. I donf know if that helps you for now. You might also wanna make sure you have your foot on the brake when your tryin to put in into gear. Some. Newer carz wont lt you shift out of park unless you are pressing the brake.

MY SHIFTER WONT COME OUT OF PARK UNLESS I USE THE EMERGENCY


Dodge, like almost everyone else, makes what is called shift interlock for automatic transmissions. This is to prevent a small child from accidentally shifting the vehicle out of park without having their foot on the brakes. Then Dodge made 2 safety helps for when that shift interlock might fail. First none is that you can pull up on the emergency brake, this allows you to put the vehicle in gear and continue on your way. The second is a small round access hole in the passenger footwell side of the hump when removed it will let you unlock the solenoid manually. The shift interlock is an electric solenoid that is energized by the brake switch so you need to have it looked at to see if it is a bad switch, solenoid, or maybe even just a fuse. Good luck

Gear shift will not move from park


First thing to check is your brake lights. The brake interlock for the shifter relies on the switch that turns your brake lights on. If it's not working, you won't have brake lights OR the ability to move the shifter out of park. In an emergency, most of these vehicles have a small plug near the shifter that you can remove, push a button, and move the shifter without pushing the brake pedal.

Good luck.

WONT COME OUT OF PARK


the first thing to do is check all your fuses, then make sure the brake light work, the shifter release seliniod works off the brake pedal.if the brake lights dont work then it will not send power to release the shifter.
