Hi Axel, my name is***** you post your vin number for me?
This car does not use an electronic shift lock release. Everything is mechanical. There is a cable to the brake pedal and a cable to the steering lock. When you turn the key on the cable from the steering lock moves one lever on the shifter and when you press the brake pedal the cable from the pedal moves the second lever to release the shifter. You need to inspect the cables at the brake pedal and the steering lock before you take the console apart. Starting the car and pumping the brake pedal firmly might get the shifter unlocked. Your problem could be at the shifter but you should inspect the cables first. I've attached in instructions for the console below.
Got it. Did you read my reply to you?
You're quite welcome. Just let me know if you need anything.
