seems like the shifter broke... cable snapped off. further more, the relay or the fuse is blown to release the gear(that pop sound). check the parking brake contact(big copper contact) to see if it still actutes properly.find a shifter assmbly from the recycling yard and a new cable from the dealer. i'm guessing that when the shifter was twisted it had a wire that shorted.

i don think its the cable becuz it can go from park to drive with no problems just that i dont have to hit the button
