Had this happen to me yesterday.  Remove the liner in the cup holder.  There is a hole that you can stick your finger in to push the gear release lever forward.  If that does not work, pull up the chrome bezel around the gear shift.  there is a pink piece of plastic attached to a spring, push that down and towards the rear of the car and you should be able to shift freely until you put it in park again.  Make sure the car is running and your foot is on the brake while trying either solution.

FYI - The little pink piece is part of the shift lock. Unfortunately, they don't sell just that part, you have to replace the entire shifter. Just had mine done a month ago... cost me $125 for the shifter plus labor.

    Well Geoff, I'll have you know that it cost me $375 at the dealership (part included). Just wondering if I qualify for an open reimbursement claim...

If you have the owners manual search the table of contents for the shift release button

if you have a floor shifter look there
you may find what looks like a little door

when you pop the door with a little pick and push the pick into to opening you should be able to shift out of park

most of the time the suspect is a defective shift lock solenoid

SOURCE: My Chrysler Sebring won't shift out of park

there is a spring on the left side of the shifter which has probably broken off it a common problem with a no cost fix as long you can find the spring. the spring attachs to the black case of the shifter and the other end goes to a pink plastic pivot to the interlock. drill a small hole in the pink upper pivot to reattach the spring. your spring would have shot off toward the back of the car inside the console check at the carpet's edge.the spring has a green protective band and is about an inch long ---to get the console out 4-- 10mm bolts at rear inside the back console compartment and 2--10mm bolts behind the a/c controls. the a/c control bezel and the upper bezel do not have screws but push in place--top bezel pulls straight out while the lower has to be pulled down and out to remove

2005 chrysler sebring start then dies right


i bought a 2005 sebring and they gave me 2 keys. one grey and thick. the other black and less heavy. the black one will start the car but as soon as i take it out of park it dies. the grey key has a chip in it that sends a signal to the engine. The black one doesn't. it is more like a back up key so that if you lock your other key in the car and it also unlocks doors and trunk.

We have a chrysler sebring 2007-we can get it started but will not move from park- we have trouble shoot from the book


This may seem elementary, but... The shift lock is released when the service brakes are applied, check to see if the brake lights work. If they do not the brake light switch or wiring may be at fault. If the do work, the shifter interlock mechanism may be broken. Good luck.
