There is a solenoid that is operated when you put your foot on the brake to shift out of park, if the solenoid doesnt recieve power than either you have no power to the switch on the brake pedal to activate the switch (check fuses) or the solenoid itself has gone bad, the solenoid is usually right next to where the shifter is located

SOURCE: charger won't shift out of park ...park lock

http://www.custombilletstore.com/product_p/1028.htm I know this is late but I had the same problem. The release wouldn't work either. I had to remove the shifter and take the cover off. A spring broke off the pink lever in the front of the shifter. The shifter would move side to side but couldn't be pulled back. The above link sells a replacement part that might work. Thanks to petevpi.

SOURCE: 2006 dodge charger will no shift out of park...

the shifter interlock system has messed up...the shifter will need replaced...to get it to a dealer without towing it remove the bezel around the shifter...there are 2 screws you need to remove near the dash to do this....once you have it removed you should be able to see the cables...start the car push the brake .the cable nearest the driver is the interlock cable follow it rearward to the pink plastic piece..push the piece back and pull the shifter out of park...if the vehicle has been in service less than 36 months the shifter should be covered under waranty

SOURCE: i cannot get the gear to shift down

check the brake lights, the shifter has a safety feature that will not allow u to shift out of park if your foot is not on the brake and the brake lights are working, if the brake lights are working there is a bypass to get it out of park under a little cover next to the shift handle.

SOURCE: MY GEAR SHIFT WILL NOT MOVE OUT OF PARK ON MY 06 DODGE CHARGER

The Dodge Magnum and Charger shifters are having issues that result in being unable to shift from park.
There is a small plastic cog in the gear shift assembly that ends up going bad... if this is the case for you, you are not alone.
The dealer's remedy is to replace the ENTIRE shift assembly because they don't sell parts for it.
There is a company called "Billet technologies" and they sell a metal machined replacement part and they have links to illustrated replacement of the part. It does involve taking the console apart, and part of the radio bezel out of the car.
It's involved but it can be done... I recommend checking for any warranty first, then if you feel daring, you can order the part and have at it.
I personally own a 05 Magnum and the shifter is sticking now and then. We shut the car off and restart and sometimes it releases. I'm going to spray lube down the openings of the shifter to keep things freed up until I can replace the cog inside.
Hope this helps...
K

My 2006 charger is stuck in park in the driveway


Try rocking the car back and forth while trying to shift out of park.
Some cars need the brake pedal pressed to shift as well...

Had a caravan once and if it was placed in park and it rolled slightly, it would put pressure on the trans...locking it up to where I couldn't shift out of park.

Hope this helps...

I have a 2009 dodge charger and my gear shift wont move out of park


There is a safety latch that requires you to depress the brake to shift out of park. Your owners manual should show a way to "bypass" this untill you can get it fixed. I seem to recall a plastic latch wears out, or something like it.

My 2006 dodge charger will not shift out of park. i tried the pink override switch, it still wont shift out of park.


This would indicate a failure with the " shift lock " solenoid. Ya, I bet you figured that out on your own already! The odd thing here of course, is that the " over ride " button doesn't work either. Is there any chance that there could have been something spilled in the console recently, any work performed in that area? Any items such as; coins, pen, small appliances dropped into that area recently?
