There's a solenoid that prevents the shifter from being moved out of park unless the brake pedal is pressed. It's located on top of the lower steering column near the dimmer switch and ignition switch. Sounds like it's sticking. Try this, turn the ignition to the first click clockwise from lock. Now try to shift it out of park. If it shifts fine then the solenoid is sticking for sure. HTH. -Jim
