My shifter quit working

On a console shift auto, you need to remove the shifter handle by pulling out the clip on the side of the the T shifter with a needle nose pliers.. Pull handle up. There is a plastic bead strip with 3 or 4 balls on it. The clip needs to be re-installed so that the clip holds the strip in place. If this does not work the strip needs to be replaced.

98 Pontiac Trans am automatic trans...

The front of the handle has a large "U" clip. Use a screw drive and pry the clip out. It's a lot easier to do when the shifter is pulled all the way back to "1" or "2" but is doable in park still. The handle will then pull up. There will be a plastic piece in it that pushes down to release the lock in the shifter assembly. If when you push the plastic piece down it doesn't release the lock you will have to remove the shifter cover and take a look inside, to see what broke. It may require replacing the whole shifter assembly. You should be able to find the complete assembly used for fairly cheap.

Shifter handle moves but does not change gear

I would suspect a broken or disconnected cable from the shifter to the transmission.
Quite an easy repair really.
Good luck.

Parking gear

The cable that connects from the shifter to the brake pedal is either broken, or you are not pushing the brake when you are trying to shift.
