Question type: General

here's a thread that I was able to pull off the web...moonwalk backwards?----You can't take the console out while the shifter is stuck in park and you can't move the shifter without the console out. But, take the trim ring off around the shifter. Carefully lift it by hand, it pulls off. Look thru the crack on the left of the shifter. There's a pink plastic lever with a silver wire attached to it. Push this toward the rear of the car with a flat screwdriver while the car is running and your foot is on the brake pedal. The shifter will release from park. Leave it in neutral, turn the car off, block the wheels and then continue to remove the center console. My car had the spring broken off at the pink part. I found the small spring laying under the console and I drilled a hole thru the pink plastic lever because the hook busted off the pink lever. Bend the spring eyelet and thread it thru the hole you drill.

I have never encountered this, but this is apparently a very common issue, with recalls on a variety of 07, 08, and 09 dodge/chry models. Here is a youtube link to a quick fix to get you to the dealer or home. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1I2HciXlDrA
