    the reason it will not come out of park is because of the brake switch, usually some build up gets on it. one way to get it out of park without changing the switch is by pulling a cover off (little cap cover on the right side of the center council right below the shifter on the side) pull that cap off and there is a little plastic lever right inside the hole push it forward and at the same time shift it out of park. its fairly simple, good luck, hope this helps.

Can not shift gear from park to drive, pulled panel up already so I could drive home, brake lights are working.

Brake lights may be working, but sometimes the switch for the brake is connected in a way to the circuitry of the car that the car won't shift out of park with the pedal depressed.

Had this problem in a 1998 Ford Taurus. Had to replace switch to make it work properly. Brake lights worked in that car, too.

does the instrument panel lights come on when you turn on the park lights only (no headlights)? If not it could be the switch itself.

1995 Buick Park Ave. Brake light remains ON and chimes on driving

The problem is the car think the park brake is on (intermittently). I would check the park brake switch, perhaps it's loose, or perhaps the park brake is pushed down to the first "click" spot. Also check the wiring connection to the switch, and the wiring nearby. Good luck!
