Question about Chevrolet Impala
Attach jumper cables to the battery from another car to give you the volts you need to move shifter. Otherwise most cars have an over-ride button for the brake-shift interlock. check your owner's manual for directions.

What you have is a safety switch, wich is why when the car is running you need to step on the brake to release the shifter from park. the switch is electric, and therefore isn't working because your battery is dead. Now, for the good news. Next to your shifter there should be a little plug, or a slot about the size of your door lock key hole. Insert your key into the slot, press down lightly, and then you can take the car out of park. That is called your "shift lock release"
