My son and I replaced the water pump and now the car cannot shift out of Park.  The O/D

Sounds like a connector has gotten jostled loose...to reset the electricals disconnect the battery and press the brake pedal five times to release any latent charge, then put it back...if the problem is electrical in nature, this should reset it...if it's a mechanical connection...back track your moves to find the unplugged goodie~
