This is a common problem for the 300.
just take off the cover where the shifter is, and you will see a small pink piece of plastic toward the front.(not the piece on the side near the pass seat.) push that piece in and the shifter will unlock. That piece and the shifter will have to be replaced. But the good news is the car is still able to drive

Slowly depress the brake pedal. If you hear a clicking sound in the shift column, its the solenoid that allows you to shift out of park. (safety feature) This solenoid sometimes goes bad, or bad connections can prevent this from operating. Its not generally suggested, but with a little mechanical experience, you can disassemble the column and remove this feature.

Do the brake light work? No brake lights and it won't shift out of park. Check your fuses and check for loose wires. Check your brake light switch. If that has failed, you won't be able to get out of park. The other one if the shift lock solenoid which is in the shifter assembly. The brake shift interlock switch prevents the car being shifted from park unless the brake pedal is depressed. Try to apply power/ground to the proper wires & see if it will activate.. If it does, then the problem is between the brake light switch & that solenoid. Could be the wires or the switch.Make sure the shifter cable is still held down in place at the shifter assembly & under the hood. It is the interlock switch that you hear/feel clicking.It is for the prior generation but may still apply.
Good Luck and hopefully you soon will be on the road again...;-)
