Unfortunately you will have to remove the entire shifter assembly from the hump. open it up and replace the interlock mechanism. a common failure on chrysler vehicles. It comes with a small spring and a plastic piece. It cost less then 8 bucks from the dealer. It is the same part that goes in the pacifica other chryslers . It's just a faulty 10 cent piece of plastic. What happens is on the plastic piece is a little hook that the spring connects too and over time it wears out and breaks. The spring flys off and makes it so the shifter can not come out of park.
