Just put your foot on the brake and yank on it real hard. It will make a loud noise but it will go into gear. The newer Dodges do that for some reason. Next time you change your oil, I would lube the shifting mechanism.

How about lubricating the shifting mechanism before yanking real hard?

I know on my charger I couldnt get in there to lube it until I broke it into drive, or down into the self shift.
