    I have the same problem! I have an 05 chrysler 300. Sometimes it will be easy to shift and sometimes I get frustrated and have to either turn the AC on and off so that the car will idle and will be able to shift. The service guy told me this is a service feature. He also told me to just pump my brakes a couple of times but I shouldn't have to do that! This is supposed to be a luxury car. It's going to the service department again tomorrow for the 5th time!!!

Sift inter lock solenoid probably craped out should be a bypass under the pocket next to the shifter

2007 chrysler 300 stuck in park how to get it out of park

Could be the brake switch or the lock solenoid among other things.
You could try moving the shifter before you turn the key switch to the on position.
The brake pedal sends a signal to the shift lock solenoid to unlock it.
That circuit would need to be checked.

shifter needs to be inspected. Its quite possible that The
shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.

suddenly this shifting problem occurred then its shifter

I have a 2005 Chrysler 300, As I shifted the car from park to reverse I heard and felt a pop in the gear shift. The gear shift moves but the car is stuck in low.

Go to the Prindle switch where the cable meets the transmission and check if it has not unhooked. Move the shifter all the way to the Park position and adjust/tighten.

Its the 'pink' thing. Remove the shifter knob, use a small screwdriver to pop off shifter bezel, un snap shifter cover, 4 clips, two on passenger side, two on driver side, remove 4 each 10 mm nuts holding shifter to the car. O.K. in the front of the shifter, is a pink cam, that prevents the shifter from moving, if the car is not on. It has broken. The small cable on your left controls it. Remove it. (disables it) Reassembel, and get the hell out of there!. Mark, 209-613-0092. Took me 15 min.

2007 chrysler 300 stuck in park .how to get it out of park?

It will not allow the shifter to move unless you step on the brake. Otherwise, there is some issue with the mechanism located in the shifter console that interacts with the shifter cable.

My 2007 Chrysler 300 starts fine but will not shift into any gear

I just finished repairing my 2007 - 300 for the same issue. Pulled in the garage.. went to go out , and could not get the shifter out of park. Researched this issue online.. First step is to remove the right side plastic holder next to the shifter. There is a small hole that has a pink plastic piece. Push this in while moving the shift lever out of park. If the shift lever does not move, then the other "pink thingy" piece that is located inside the shifter box has most likely broken. There is a tiny spring that attachs to this pink piece ( probably a $0.50 piece of poorly engineered product ) that breaks off. See the following link on how to fix this problem. I drilled a small hole in the pink plastic piece where the small hook broke off.. then attached a cotter pin through the hole , and fastened the spring to that... should not have any further problems.. this link demonstrates how to remove the shifter box. The entire process took me roughly 2 hrs to complete... saved myself hundreds of repair dollars!!

Transmission lever will not move out of park

Start it up, step on the brake, and turn the steering wheel hard to the left or to the right to release the shifter.
