Put the car in neutral and turn it off. Put on the e-brake. Place a brick, stone, or a wheel chuck in front of or behind the wheels of the car to prevent it from rolling if the e-brake does not work. Try pulling out on the plastic button you depress to switch gears, it may have broken inside or it may be stuck. The knob is removable put you must pull very hard on it to get it to come off. you may have to turn the shifter knob a quarter turn on the 2005 then pull to remove the knob.

Yeah - had the same problem and this helped. Good advice. There is a two inch pin that came loose and was not connecting inside. Once I removed the button, re- positioned the pin (I basically just had to feel around, it's a little hard because you can't get a view of it) then put the button back, I was able to put it in park and reverse again.

The plastic button on the gear shift broke allowing the pin to fall out of place. You guys nailed my issue. Downside is the dealership only sells the entire shift knob with button as1 piece which is just over $100.00 not including special order shipping. I'm checking junk yards now for a used one.
