Burning smell inside car. Not under hood. What could it be?

I had the same problem with my 2005 Honda Accord. I would happen only sometime but is a distant odor I smell from inside the cabin. Older Hondas sometimes have gasket problems that leak small amounts of oil onto the exhaust manifold. Ask the mechanic to go check the valve cover gaskets. They replaced a new gasket to my car at the Honda dealer and I haven't smelled that burning odor since then. Good luck.

The gearshift on my 2005 hyundai sonata gearshift is locked. where is the release button?

The release is located inside of the shifter housing. It can be accessed through a small hole, possibly covered with a small plastic cover, near the shifter. Insert punch into hole, depress release and shift out of park.
