Question about Cars & Trucks
Assuming you are familiar with the usual clutch faults there are three less common problems that could cause disengagement problems.
Rusty or gummy splines preventing the driven plate moving away from the flywheel when disengaged.
Contaminated friction material causing the faces to stick together.
Damaged or partially seized clutch pilot bearing.
I hope this helps...

Does it sound like it is in neutral when you have it in gear? If so, your linkeage from shifter to transmission needs to be adjusted. If you follow the cable, you should see an adjustment for it.
Turn to right to tighten it and left to loosen it.
If it tries to move but doesn't, it may be e-brake stuck. Most likely linkeage needs adjustment or vacuum line came of tranny.

You need to replace your BTSI (brake transaxle shift interlock) solenoid. I have replaced MANY and it is the problem 99% of the time. The only other thing it could be is your BTSI fuse so check it first. All you have to do is remove the shifter assembly and install a new BTSI solenoid (couple of screws and two connector terminals) and you will be driving in no time. Hope this helps!!

Most likely the shifter cable broke or became disconnected. Have someone shift the car (engine off, parking brake on) while someone else watches the transmisssion linkage to see if it moves. If it does move there is an internal transmission problem if it doesn't it is just a problem with the cable.

SOURCE: I have a 2008 chevy
It could be a few things....I just had this same problem with my 2008 chevy aveo this week. Also, my check engine light came on the very next day after the gear shifter started locking. I called Bob Bell and they told me that the gear shifter locking is probably due to a sensor going bad that tells your car it is in park. However, after taking my car to my brother-in-law (who has very LITTLe knowledge about repairing cars), we discovered that my brake lights were not working either. He told me that is why my check engine light is on - because it is extremely dangerous to drive without brake lights. We checked the fuses to make sure there was no fuse blown and they were all just fine. So bottom line, the problem was that there is a brake switch under your dash board where your brake is. My switch keeps sticking and will probably eventually need to be replaced. When the switch works properly, my brake lights work fine, my gear shifter unlocks and my check engine light goes out. Not sure how much it is to fix this switch if that is the problem but I hope it helps!
