you have to insert a key into the little hole at the top left of the shifter to release it. the servo that is activated when you press the brake might be bad or it could be a blown fuse or a broken wire . Also it can be internally broken gear shift button.
to take off that gear shift knob/button. there was a **** in the front of the knob, you use a screwdriver and pry out the staple that holds it in place. Then you can pull on the gear shift knob gently to remove it. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Jeep wrangler 2005 automatic floor gear shifter is loose won't engage stuck in park


try pushing the knob down onto the shifter a little bit then try and shift. Sometimes if that knob is raised even a little bit it will be locked in park. Can't be 100% sure without seein it but worth a shot. Hope that helps you.

My battery is dead and I can't move the car due to the auto gear shift stuck in park. How do I move the car to get a jump on the battery?


if you look on the center council where the shift lever is you will see a small plastic button on the drivers. Remove the button. Insert a small screwdriver into the hole and push down. You will then be able to move the shift lever into nuetral and push the car.

My 1997 grand am will not start &the gear shifter is stuck in park


If you have no electrical power to the car the solenoid will not release the gear shift. You can release it manually, on the under side of the steer colum should be a small button to push, or if it is shift on the floor, there should be a "release" tag.
Make sure you battery is fully charged, and check MAIN fuses in the engine bay.
