Could be a brake switch that is connected to the brake pedal. You normally step on the brake to place the car in gear. If the switch goes out and you step on the brake the trans will not engage. Also could be a fuse.

There is a safety device that serves as "Park Lock out switch". This little pink plastic devise has a strong spring attached and the little loop that holds the spring is known to break off. It has been a common problem with 2005."

You can fix it yourself if it is the "Pinky Thing" as outlined on youtube videos. This happened on my 2006 300. You can take off the bezel on you shifter, and manually push on the "Pinky Thing" to allow you to shift. Check it out on Youtube! The part can be gotten at a Dealer for about $8.
