Will the shifter release from park with the ignition on and foot on the brake? Does the climate control panel turn on with the ignition on? Also please check to make sure the inertia switch did not trip. To reset it just depress the top of it to reset it. It is located behind the passenger front kick panel. There should be a hole in the panel where you can put your finger through to reset it. Let me know.
