there should be a shift lock overide button on the shifter look in owners manuel. just push button in and shift
make sure brake lights work most cars wont shift out of park unless brake is on. they use the brake light switch for this though some have a seperate switch on the brake pedal
check ALL fuses under dash and under hood replace any that are bad
should be able to shift when u press brake pedal, if not press pedal and see if brake lights work if brake light switch is bad this can effect the shift control. if this is not issue then the shifter is jamming and the stifting linkage is most likely worn or out of alignment and should be repaired
I think your brake shift interlock solenoid is not releasing the Park position when you apply the brake.
Check for a blown fuse first. see owner manual for location of fuse.
Also, check owner manual for how to manually bypass the interlock.
When you step on the brake pedal, it activates a solenoid that unlocks the shift linkage cable so it will move. It is a safety feature to ensure you have you foot on the brake and not the gas, as you shift out of park.
I have that problem too, there is a little square cap on the shift consloe, its about 1/2 inch square if you pry that cap off with a screwdriver ..there is a small white button in the hole. That button is an emergency manual release for the shifter. If you push in and hold that button down you can manually get the shifter out of park.
