Question about 1990 Nissan Maxima
I understand the cable was disconnected from the console, but have you tried disconnecting it from the trans arm also. The reason I ask is it may be possible that the cable is frayed or frozen inside the jacket.

If the car is parked on an incline (on a hill), you may have to
pull rather hard to get the parking pawl teeth to disengage.
If it still won't come out of park, then there is something wrong with
the solenoid activated lock that is supposed to release the shift
handle. You can over-ride it this way.
Look for a key slot on the console near the shifter. Set your parking
brake so the car won't roll. Insert your key in the slot on the console
near the shifter.
You should be able to pull the lever out of park into neutral. Now remove your key, put the key in the ignition and the car should start. It will start only if the shifter is in neutral or park. If you have to do this every time, you need to get it fixed. It's probably a bad solenoid or switch and not too expensive....
Keep us updated.
