I have owned several vehicles that had a similar problem due to dust and dirt in the mechanism. Try spaying a silicon lubricant in and around the slot to loosen it up and wipe as clean as you can. If this doesn't work you'll have to disassemble the unit to clean and lubricate...

Gear **** locked in park and button stuck


sounds like you have to take the console out and see if something is obstructing the shifter or gear release mechanism. Or something got broken or bent inside that shifter or the linkage. But you're gonna have to look more in depth by taking that console out.

Okay, you are correct, the key is stuck because of the shifter lock wont release, the most common reason is its stuck, you will need to remove the covering around shift to get to shifter lock release solenoid, there you will clean and lube it, you will need to move it by hand as you spray wd40 on the arms, you will see how it work by pressing the shift release and you will see to lever that gets pushed, it wont move because its stuck but you will see the levers move inside, hope this helps, good day.

Because of the computer set up - you will need to take it to the shop. If it is a rental or leased vehicle then the factory may have shut it down. Seen this happen.
Try this - take down the vin number and call the dealer - ask about recalls or any complications that concern the vin number you have.
This should get you pointed in the right direction.

The button on the shifter is stuck and key wont turn or come out. Button on shifter wont release so the key is stuck in the first position like if you wanted to turn on just the radio


okay there is a compartment under your steering column open and look directly under your ignition youll see a release button, that will get your key out, take the car to chevy and have them check it out, this will happen continuously if you dont and it can evolve into many other problems according to many other car forums, hope this helps
