I have an 05 Chrysler 300. The problem is actually a very small pink hook that has broken and is now preventing from pulling the device that let's you move the shifter from Park. Remove the cover for the shifter and put your finger inside on the top left corner of the shifter facing the steering wheel. You'll feel a button. Press it while pressing down the Break and it'll allow you to move the shifter. I recommend getting it repaired at a dealer as soon as possible. Hope this helps. You can find more information here

The best solution that i can give you is to pumping the brake while hammering the shifter with a mallet and yanking the shifter down (all at the same time). its should be enough if you want another answers here is a link:

SOURCE: my chrysler 300 shifter is

pull up and out on the small storage compartment to the right of the shifter, this will uncover a small pink lever...that is the emergency release. If that don't work...the problem is further down on the shifter and requires removing the console, more work, and some new parts. Good luck, i hope this helps.

2007 chrysler 300 stuck in park how to get it out of park

Could be the brake switch or the lock solenoid among other things.
You could try moving the shifter before you turn the key switch to the on position.
The brake pedal sends a signal to the shift lock solenoid to unlock it.
That circuit would need to be checked.

Its the 'pink' thing. Remove the shifter knob, use a small screwdriver to pop off shifter bezel, un snap shifter cover, 4 clips, two on passenger side, two on driver side, remove 4 each 10 mm nuts holding shifter to the car. O.K. in the front of the shifter, is a pink cam, that prevents the shifter from moving, if the car is not on. It has broken. The small cable on your left controls it. Remove it. (disables it) Reassembel, and get the hell out of there!. Mark, 209-613-0092. Took me 15 min.

2007 chrysler 300 stuck in park .how to get it out of park?

It will not allow the shifter to move unless you step on the brake. Otherwise, there is some issue with the mechanism located in the shifter console that interacts with the shifter cable.

My 2007 Chrysler 300 starts fine but will not shift into any gear

I just finished repairing my 2007 - 300 for the same issue. Pulled in the garage.. went to go out , and could not get the shifter out of park. Researched this issue online.. First step is to remove the right side plastic holder next to the shifter. There is a small hole that has a pink plastic piece. Push this in while moving the shift lever out of park. If the shift lever does not move, then the other "pink thingy" piece that is located inside the shifter box has most likely broken. There is a tiny spring that attachs to this pink piece ( probably a $0.50 piece of poorly engineered product ) that breaks off. See the following link on how to fix this problem. I drilled a small hole in the pink plastic piece where the small hook broke off.. then attached a cotter pin through the hole , and fastened the spring to that... should not have any further problems.. this link demonstrates how to remove the shifter box. The entire process took me roughly 2 hrs to complete... saved myself hundreds of repair dollars!!
