Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix
I have a serious problem i have been trying to stumble and solve. The other day i came home went to put my car into park and the shifter would not go into park. I ended up setting the parking brake and disconecting the battery so i could at least go into the house. I fiddled with the linkage cable a little and eventually got the car to finaly go into park. Now my problem is i can't get the car to go out of park. Is there a simple fix that i am missing or am i gonna have to bite the bullet, have the car towed to a shop for them to take advantage of me because i don't know what i'm doing or whats wrong. Any suggestions?
There is a little slot next to your shifter . Take a look at it I believe your key will fit in it and unlock it.

Check the brake light fuse. When you push the brake to putn it in or out of park, there is a little selinoid that moves a lock in the gear lever. If the fuse is burnt, the lock wont open. Had same trouble on a truck i used to have
