Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site , with the key on and when you step on the brake pedal do you hear a click down by the shift lever?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
No I dont hear anything, the car won't start

ok, down on the center console by the shift lever there should be a small square cut out. pry that off and stick a pen or thin screwdriver down in the hole to release the pink(i believe) lever. that should allow you to shift out of park

Customer: replied 7 days ago.

I got the lever in the middle to move but when I put in back park and to try and start the car it won't move again
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
How can I start the car without it being in park?

ok, and you arent hearing the solenoid clicking?

you can try start it in neutral if it goes in neutral?

Customer: replied 7 days ago.
It will go in neutral in the middle but on the dash board it still says reverse.
Customer: replied 7 days ago.
I hear the clicking noise when I try to start it

ok, you have bigger problem than I thought.your shift cable and shifter mechanism are totally out of hack and the shifter mechanism will need replaced and the cable adjusted.
