It could be that the brake switch is bad! If you would, look down at the shifter, there is a emergency shift lock release, take your key and insert it in there and push down should release your shifter! please use this method instead of leaving it in neutral! that is very dangerous
I would start by looking at the brake switch/sensor.
it is located on the brake pedal lever typically close to the firewall.
if the sensor bad or the wiring/connector are loose or broken it can keep you from removing your shift linkage from park.
because your problem is intermittent I would look at the connection and verify that it hasn't wiggled loose.
If the brake sensor at the pedal brake is malfunctioning, or the cable became unattached, the car will "think" you are not depressing the pedal, and therefore, will not allow you to shift it out of park.One way you can tell if this switch is working, is by looking (from inside the vehicle) at the reflection of the 3rd stop light on the rear glass. If you cant see the light working, then you can be sure that the brake pedal switch is the culprit.
In all probability the brake sensor on the pedal is starting to work
erratically. This sensor sends a signal to the shifter gate, and the
gate will not open unless the brake pedal is depressed. I had it happen
to me, and the only solution until i replaced the sensor was to hit the
brake over and over until the stop light worked. If the stop lights
work, the shifter gate should allow the shifter to move out of park. This sensor/ switch is located about 3 inches above the brake pedal, and it is easily recognizable by the cable attached to it.
In all probability, the brake switch got stuck in the closed position.
One way to test it is by trying to move the shift lever from Park to
Neutral without depressing the brake. If you can do this, then the
switch is damaged. It is very simple and inexpensive to replace.It is
located a few inches above the brake pedal rubber pad.
It sounds like the lever from the gear shifter has come loose. I would first look at the shifter from under the car. You can also remove the boot (or console) from inside the car and check the linlage. Most linkage is held on by a small clip or cotter pin and somethime they don't stay in place anad the linkage slides off the arm..
ok it could be a number of things 1. faulty transaxle, 2. faulty clutch disc, 3. release lever faulty, or 4. pressure plate bad also check and see if you have a emergency release for you gear shift its normally located by the gear shift
