Question about 1996 Chevrolet G10
Check your brake lights, do they work? If not then you have found the problem, the little electric solenoid that unlocks the shifter is power off the brake light circuit, no brake lights no shift possible out of park position.

Loosen the bolt thats on the trans that holds the linkage on..Some one may have tightened it to much..Or grab a hold of it and see if it is sloppy and moves around..If so its loose inside trans..Another possible cause the linkage from column to trans may be binding up when trying to shift..Hope this helps you and Have A Great Night

had the same problem on my 97. your going to have to take off the cowl covers. to do that youll have to remove your wiper arms.
where the arms connect to the car there should be a little circle centercap looking thing, that just pops off with a flathead screw driver. theres a bolt behind that, match it up with the correct socket and remove that. put the arms in the up position as if your cleaning your windsheild, this releases the tension of the arms on the shaft there sitting on. then simply wiggle them loose until they come off.
the cowl covers are the black covers between the back of the hood and the windshield, there should be a few plastic rivets holding them in place, drill those out which is very simple doesnt take a strong drill, then remove the weather strip from the base of them underneath the hood which will just pull out, then remove the covers and youll be able to see the motor and all linkages. mine broke where the motor connects to the links in the middle. get the part from the dealer not a wrecker, reason being is that these cars had a recall on them for a bad seal, what happens is that water gets in the balljoint like seal forces the grease out and causes the links to seperate. the dealer has the corrected parts the wrecker may not. vice grip needle nose pliers work best for attaching the links, then install everything the reverse of removal, youll also need to get replacement plastic rivets for those cowl covers its cheaper to get those from car quest should only cost you 2 bucks. best of luck, takes about 1 1/2 hrs to do depening on where the link broke.
if the links arent broke your motor is probably bad.
