Hi Robert..thanks for responding. Here Is what happen, the chrysler was stuck in park due to a faulty inter lock latch . (The pink thingy) I replaced the latch and on on reassembling the shifter ,apparently I've not connected the shift cable or the park brake cable correctly. But for now the shifter is shifting but the dash indicator is not moving and the last gear that i had the car in was drive and therefore the key wont release and the battery is dead. I did jump start the vehicle today to recheck my progress. I couldn't get into the trunk because the vehicle is in drive and the power button is not working and look like there is no emergency release. I crawled through the back seats. Yes i did take both cables loose before removing the shifter.

i did reconnect both cables.
Chrysler Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

One of the cables should have a 8mm hex bolt attached, did you loosen this bolt when you removed the cables?

i did take remove and replace the 8mm hex bolt
Chrysler Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

That may be where the problem is at. You will need to loosen the hex bolt, then manually shift the transmission to park. Then move the shifter to park. When both the transmission and the shifter are actually in park retighten the hex bolt and all should be well. To manually shift to park the vehicle needs to be raised enough to access the left side of the transmission. Move the shift lever all the way to the back then move the shifter to park and then tighten the 8mm hex bolt. This will adjust the cable to allow everything to operate properly.

Just so you know, this bolt did not need to come loose to remove the cable, the cable should pop off the ball stud on the shifter assembly.

Keep me posted and let me know if you have any additional questions...

Thank you,

Robert

Robert i've tried eveything you mentiond but still everything is the same. Nothing is working. If i put the tranny in park manually souldn't i be able to at least get my key out of the ignition
Chrysler Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

To be able to get the key out of the ignition, the transmission must be manually shifted to park and the shifter must be in the park position AND the shift interlock cable must be in the correct position (This is the cable that is hooked to the pink thingy).

Ok, i got you. So maybe one of problems could be the alignment of the interlock cable, so it looks like i'll just have to tinker with that cable until something is corrected. That cable must be very sensitive because i thought i had it back in the same way that it came out
Chrysler Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Yes, that cable is very sensitive, it must be in the correct position to allow the key to come out.
