most newer vehicles have transmission control modules,that go to a default of 2nd or 3rd gear when they go bad! I had a 91 plymouth stuck in 3rd gear because of this module! could be your problem! when mine went out, it smelled like something electrical burned inside the the passenger cabin! I would check all the electrical connections on the transmission first good luck

There are some sensors on the transmission that tend to go bad. You may also need to check the wiring. Could be a computer problem. How many miles?

UPDATE! ! ! Fixed this problem! YES ! ! ! The speed sensors was all that needed replacing. NOT ANY SOLENOIDS ! !. Two of them cost $160 and it solved the problem! Do not buy from the dealers. An after market version is available for $50 each. I was forced to buy dealers.

Sounds like you need a new shifter assembly, or the brake switch. Most likely will be the shifter though if you can move it out of park with the override.
