I, as well as a guy I work with both drive s-types. He had this problem with his.
The problem is with a cable that runs from the shifter to the transmission. There is a bracket which holds the cable in place. This bracket is prone to coming loose and when that happens, your s-type won't shift out of neutral. Use loctite to resecure the small bracket and you'll be back on the road.

WOW very funy, At work today, got a call from my brother inlaw and father drive a 2003 S-type. and it is stuck in park. So while waiting on a tow truck they call me and my google search brought me here. So I told them to rock the car back and forth and have someone try to move the shifter... and it WORKED, LMAO,, thanks

First off check the battery. Try and jump start it. If that does not get the vehicle running you may have a problem with your J gate as it will not start unless in park or neutral. If an internal electrical fault has happened then the micro swith may not send a signal to the ecu to allow the car to start. the J gate is the gear selector by the way

There is a plastic pawl that locks the gearbox shift in park. This with wear jams when there is a load on it such as parking on a slope. try pushing the car uphill to ease this load then pull it sharply out of park. Also there is an adjustment on the gearbox end that may need attention/resetting. When parking on a slope - apply parkbrake first and then engage park, this may help. Hope this helps.
