The shift interlock is not releasing. On some cars, you have to push fairly hard on the brake pedal to release it. Some cars work off the brakelights. If, for what ever reason, your brakelights are not working, the interlock will not release.

There's a button under a little cover on the side of the shift lever to over ride the lock, pop off the cover and stick your finger in there, push. That should do it, but for a permanent fix paste: www.caliberforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17838
