Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.
If the release button on the shifter isn't moving as it should when you put it in park it's because the internals of the shifter aren't actually in park. The problem may be a failure of the shifter itself, the shift cable could be out of adjustment, there may be a transmission or shift cable issue that's preventing it from fully going into park.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
