Follow instructions in manual for SHIFTLOCK RELEASE

Turn off car.
Engage Parking Break
Take ignition key and put into shift lock release slot (near gear shift)
Push down on key and at same time MOVE gear shift to neutral.
Remove key, start car as normal and disengage parking break...

good to go.... mechanic can replace/repair if this is an ongoing issue: $85 I read somewhere...but heard it's not hard to do yourself for $35 someone else wrote.

Goodluck

Shift lock


It could possibly be a bad electrical connection or poor connection with the transmission. Did the mechanic get any error codes?

Trail blazer gear shift button


Could be the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to turn the key lock to the unlock position, move the shifter out of park, then start the engine in neutral.
The shifter and the shift lock solenoid would need to be inspected.

2000 Ford Explorer gear shift is locked


I have seen this happen so don't be mad if I am wrong someone buys a car then can't get it to go in gear. You have to apply the brake before you try to move the shifter then it will move if you try the shifter first it will lock and even the brake will not let it loose until you push it back up and start over and apply brake first
