Re: My mower will not go into geat either
That can happen if the belt comes of,it allows clutch pedal to over travel and if the retaining pin is not in the rod it can come loose. There is a 1/2 brake adjust nut on the actuator,if you remove that nut the actuator will come off and you can put it through the rod and reinstall it,there may be a actuator return spring that you may have to contend with but it is a fairly easy job, make sure you don't over tighten the nut,that is the brake adjustment,the actuator should have some play in it,if the brakes seem too tight after you install it back the nut off till they feel ok.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I would say it has something to do with this !
Shift Interlock System
An ignition/shifter interlock mechanism is installed to prevent shifting the transaxle out of the PARK position unless the ignition switch is rotated to RUN and the brake pedal is applied. The floor shift interlock system consists of:
an actuator assembly integral to the ignition/shifter interlock cable assembly.
a bracket retaining the actuator.
the necessary wiring.
The solenoid is energized when the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, locking the transaxle range selector lever in the PARK position. When the brake pedal is applied and the stoplight switch (13480) is activated, the ignition/shifter interlock actuator is deactivated and the transaxle range selector lever can be moved out of the PARK position.
Hi, check back on the side of the transaxle where the brake spring is attached, the is a short lever there held on to the brake assy. this lever and pins will be dry and siezed on. remove the assy and clean and lubricate the pins. Regards Phil.
The switch is down on the brake pedal lever arm near the pivot stradling the master cylinder actuating rod. You can verify the wiring is okay by using a paperclip to jumper the two wires and verify the brake lights do come on- if they do- replace the switch by removing that bolt that retains the actuating rod, and the switch slips out once the bolt is removed, Reinstallation is just like removal only opposite steps- verify the flat on the actuator is contacting the switch and works correctly once installed. nut and Bolt should be torqued to about 20 to 30 Ft Pounds.
YOU HAVE TO UNSCREW THE SHIFT LEVER KNOB. REMOVE THE CENTER CONSOLE.REMOVE THE RUBBER SHIFT LEVER BOOT AND THE DUST SEAL.YOU NEED TO RAISE SUPPORT VECHICLE ON JACKSTANDS ON LEVEL SOLID GROUND.YOU HAVE TO DISCONNECT THE EXTENSION ROD FROM THE TRANSAXLE.SIMPLY REMOVE THE BOLT THAT ATTACHES IT TO THE EXTENSION BRACKET.TO DISCONNECT THE SHIFT ROD FROM THE TRANSAXLE PUSH THE DUST BOOT FORWARD REMOVE THE CLIP AND DRIVE OUT THE SPRING PIN WITH A PIN PUNCH.DISCARD THE SPRING PIN.DO NOT REUSE IT.TO DISCONNECT THE REAR END OF THE SHIFT ROD FROM THE SHIFT LEVER REMOVE THE NUTS AND BOLTS.THEN REMOVE THE TWO NUTS AND WASHERS THAT RETAIN THE CHANGE BALL HOLDER TO THE UNDERSIDE OF THE EXTENSION ROD AND REMOVE THE CHANGE BALL HOLDER LOWER THE SHIFT LEVER DUST SEAL,SHIFT LEVER BALL SEAT,SHIFT LEVER AND EXTENSION ROD.INSPECT THE BUSHING AT THE FRONT END OF THE EXTENSION ROD AND REPLACE IT IF ITS CRACKED TORN OR WORN.

Hi, I'm not familiar with your car, but I copied the procedure below from autozone.com. Thanks for using FixYa!
Removal & Installation
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Apply the parking brake.
Reposition the transaxle shift lever to the LOW position.
Remove the console trim plate using the following procedure:
Pull the trim plate upwards, starting at the front and working back to release the tabs at the retainers.
Detach the electrical connectors from the driver's seat heater switch, if equipped.
Remove the trim plate from the vehicle.
Remove the rubber mat from the storage compartment in the console. Remove the screws from the storage compartment.
Remove the screws from the console mounting bracket at the rear of the transaxle shifter lever.
Remove the screws from the forward edge of the console.
Detach the electrical connectors and pull the console rearward to release the tabs from the retainers in the instrument panel. Remove the console from the vehicle.
Installation is the reverse of the removal process. Align the console over the transaxle shifter and position the console tabs to the retainers in the instrument panel. Press the console forward into the retainers until fully seated. Use care to align the console with the mounting brackets.
Once the console is installed, return the transaxle shift lever to PARK. Release the parking brake.
it's 1 of 5 likely things
The drive belt from the engine to the transaxle is totally slipping or broken
The linkage from the control pedal to the transaxle is faulty.
The transaxle is broken (not user fixable)
The by-pass rod is pulled out
The brake pedal is pushed or the linkage is stuck in the "brake" position.
Are the rear wheels locked up?
I've had this problem and thought I'd have to buy a new transaxle about $800 !!! I'd rather have scrapped it and bought a new mower.
Luckily... it was an easy fix. Hopefully it is for you too.
On the right side of your transaxle, you will see a small disk. the brake pedal spring is attached to a lever just to the outside of this disk. The lever actuates some little dowel pins that serves as pistons which when the brake pedal is depressed, the pistons push a braking pad against the disk... much like the front brake on the car rotor. My dowel pins were stuck and locked the disk... no way the mower would move. take note of how it goes together, but take the lever and springs off and WD-40 the pins to a good sliding action. Reassemble and go.
Man... I hope after all this, that is the solution! ha
Good luck, friend!
It sounds like the brake plate is sticking on the transaxle,if you look on the right side of the transaxle a rod and spring run back from the front to a plate,under this plate are two 1/4 pins that actuate the brake pads on the disc,lubricate these pins with wd-40 and move the plate back and forth to see i this frees the problem up.
Most Transaxles will Allow the Unit to Move when in Neutral as Long as the Parking Brake Lever is Released, Unless the Transaxle is a Hydrostatic/Hydromatic Transaxle. If a Hydro Transaxle, then there has to be a Pressure Release Lever that will Open the Internal Bypass Valve and Allow the Hydraulics System to Free Flow the Hydraulic Oil throught the Transaxle and Allow the Unit to Move.
