Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala
Ok, other than the obvious question of are you applying the brake before shifting my next would be does the gear shift move at all? If it does is there any resistance or not? If there is no resistance it is possible that the shift cable is broken. Also is the shifter on the column or in the center console? If it is in the center the plunger that allows the shifter to move may be stuck or broken. There is a clip that holds the handle on, remove the clip and ensure the button on the shifter handle is moving and pressing down on the nylon piece that "unlocks" the shifter. Lastly the problem could be with the "shift interlock" which is a cable that ties the shifter to the brake pedal. If the interlock is damaged it will prevent the vehicle from shifting from park. I hope i have helped in some way.
