Question about Dodge Avenger
Try override under cup holder liner. Check brake lights. If still not able to shift out of park I bet the spring come loose inside the shifter assembly. To remove-Pull up on the shinny PRND cover to remove, the rest of the covers unsnap (use small screwdriver), pull up on shifter knob (might need to wiggle a little), Look for the pink plastic thing on the left. It should have a spring that pulls back on it when you shift into reverse. If this is missing, unbolt the four nuts that hold the assembly to the floor, look for the old spring. If it's gone you can cut a new one to size and hook it back on. If yours is like mine, the small pink hook is broke and you will need to drill a small hole in it to have something to clip the new spring to. By the way, I had to do all this with the assembly in the compartment as I was unable to remove it completly. Not enough room. I removed the coin tray in front of the shifter, ParkReverseNutralDrive thing, grey cover that surrounds the coin tray, 4 mounting nuts, and the cable that attaches to the pink piece of plastic that Chrsler should have put a little more effort into designing. ARG! Good luck.

Not sure if this will work for you but worth a shot. I own a 2005 dodge neon. I know the ecu's are different but maybe dodge was smart and made all the cars this way. Insert you key into ignition. Turn key forward until you are at the last position right before the car starts to crank over. Repeat this for a total of three times then on your digital odometer display, you will see a set of numbers displayed. this will be your code for the malfanction(s) that set your check engine light. Like I said, it might not work on your car but give it a shot. If not, rent an obdII scanner and get your codes. Then you know where to start looking to fix your problem.
