This is a very common issue with these vehicles. The problem is a plastic component inside the shifter has broken and this is what is preventing the shifter from moving. To fix this you need to replace the shifter.

Also be sure that your brake lights work. If they don't that will prevent the shifter from moving as well.

I have a 2006 charger rt. We had tcm remanned and now the tcm cannot be found by computer. The bas, esp, and tps lights are all on and wont go out. Car wont shift out of first. What should we do?

You will need to reset the computer, find reset button or disconnect battery and cycle through the start and shift process, then leave disconnected, overnight if possible or at least 2 hours, before reconnecting, start and let idle for 5 minutes before shifting to drive, then drive car on open road and give a firm push to the throttle, try manual shift, if no go, inspect tcm.

Brake lockout cable connected to the shift interlock latch

Need more details.
Dodge Charger RT & SRT have weak plastic shifter assemblies. The brake interlock works first to let you move the shifter to the right. Then the shift interlock needs to release to let you shift down the gate. I can tell you how to get by until you can replace the assembly if you give more information than just a title.

I have a 2009 dodge charger and my gear shift wont move out of park

There is a safety latch that requires you to depress the brake to shift out of park. Your owners manual should show a way to "bypass" this untill you can get it fixed. I seem to recall a plastic latch wears out, or something like it.

My 2006 dodge charger will not shift out of park. i tried the pink override switch, it still wont shift out of park.

This would indicate a failure with the " shift lock " solenoid. Ya, I bet you figured that out on your own already! The odd thing here of course, is that the " over ride " button doesn't work either. Is there any chance that there could have been something spilled in the console recently, any work performed in that area? Any items such as; coins, pen, small appliances dropped into that area recently?

I cannot get the gear to shift down

check the brake lights, the shifter has a safety feature that will not allow u to shift out of park if your foot is not on the brake and the brake lights are working, if the brake lights are working there is a bypass to get it out of park under a little cover next to the shift handle.
