Question about 2004 Chrysler Sebring
My 2002 Sebring won't shift (or "click") into park so I can't remove the key from the ignition and also can't lock the doors.
The car shifts into gears fine and the car runs well; but I just can't get the gear shift to "take" in park to remove key from ignition.
It's an automatic ... any help is appreciated.
You either have problem with the shifter assy, or the shifter cable has come out of adjustment.
If you remove the shifter bezel and center console you will be able to see the shifter cable. There will be a white or black lift tab on the cable. Release the tab and and place shifter in park. If it still does not go into park that means that you will need a shifter assy. If it goes into park with the tab released you push the tab back down with it still in park.
That should take care of your problem.

Try replacing the transmission filter and the trannie fluid. Mine would only go in reverse, and now it drives pretty well. This year has a screw on filter. Hope this helps

SOURCE: 1999 e-250. Automatic.
Sometimes this its a problem with the Brake Safety Interlock switch (generally this device is located at your brake pedal). Other possibilitie, could be a fuse controling stop lights also easily fixed for the cost of a fuse....
Additioanly, I suggest check the shift lock safety linkage cable, this request a little more work to fix, however check to see if you have an override fix, this is a small hole in the upper right hand corner of the center console where the shifter is, take cover off and insert small screw driver to over ride the lock.
