Try this. Turn the ignition one click clockwise from the lock position. Step on the brake and try to shift out of park. If this works it's the shift lock solenoid for sure. HTH. -Jim

shift lock solenoid as stated by Tom,, also could be the shift control cable is kinked up or not attached to the holder clips it has to have something holding it stiff and in place other wise it will just bind and what not.. the cable is right there under the drivers side door
