Question about 2005 Dodge Magnum
The BTSI (Brake Transmission Shift Interlock) has a small spring retainer on the park safety. A small plastic tab breaks & releases the spring. This requires the shifter to be disassembled in order to be repaired (unless yours is under warranty).
Repaired mine Sunday May 1st and can provide detailed instructions if desired.
If you are lucky, your brake interlock is the only problem. There is a bypass switch located beside the gear selector. Remove the small "cubby" bin located next to the gear shift by simply lifting up to remove. You will note a small access port and a pink button contained therein. Press the pink button to override the brake interlock.
If you still cannot shift into park, then the shifter must be removed for the spring repair. Even if yours is still under warranty, you will get another shifter that will eventually fail due to poor engineering.
Please let me know if you would like my assistance.

I do believe that this is your problem. The plug or anchor could be bad. Also there is the switch from brake medal to shifter that goes bad.
