Pull the bezel up out of the console, and or remove the center console. I think there might be a pin that is part of the shifter button that is not depressing enough allowing it to go into park.

Best Answer

I am not sure if I can do it on my own, scared of ruining things, any idea if I take my car to a mechanic how much would it cost me.

At least an hour worth of labor.

Thanks a lot.
