Usually when this happens it means that that the brake light switch is on the verge of failure. This is a simple fix and inexpensive. It is just a small switch located under the brake pedal and can be purchased at almost any parts store, depending on vehicle.

Hi, shift interlock may be a problem, some cars I have seen a wiring problem from corroded wires in the console that shorted out the shift interlock solenoid.
Since you can release it but it's only hard, then the problem is with the shift interlock...

Shift into park


Could be the park lock solenoid. Thats the part that locks the shifter in park and requires you to press on the brake pedal to release.

Transmishan is stuck in park wont come out


Usually a sign the brake light switch is not working or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park is faulty. The brake light switch cuts power to the solenoid to release when the key is on.

My gear shift is stuck in park


the 1st thing to check is the brake lights, if they are not working due to a defective brake light switch the system locks the gearshift in park, if the brake lights are working you will need to check for a stuck release cable or release cable solenoid actuator problem.

Power locks not working right


Hey, this might work.....get in truck, close doors, put key in ignition in lock position.....hold down the door lock button on driver side door control and wait for the lock control to be displayed on the information screen(odometer read-out).....it should say like lock 1, lock 2, lock 3, lock 4.....or something, I always reset mine to LOCK 1, to do this hold the odometer reset button on dash for a sec or two til it changes settings, then release, repeat till you get to LOCK 1, then quickly press and release odometer reset button to exit program, this is the function to lock doors over 15 mph and when out of park and to unlock doors when returned to park......yours' might be set to another function number....try it out, let me know if this helps.........good luck!
