Howdy from Texas! I'm Chase and I will do my best to assist you here! Does the shifter knob button feel normal when pressing it in before trying to shift from park to drive?

Ok give me one moment let me see if I can find more information on this shifter knob sensor. It SOUNDS like the sensor release switch is faulted. Stay tuned! I will be right back!

No not at all. My son is driving if and he happened while at a traffic light. He is waiting on a tow truck

Ok, so it's not a MAJOR issue. If the shift button will not press in at all, or presses but has zero response then the shift button is broken. Not a major ordeal. Inconvenient for sure, and I do hate this has happened to you. This is pretty common on these models of SVR Sports. At least when it's taken to the shop you will have some information to go off of where you are not in the dark as to what the issue is.

So it's one of two things. If the button will not press when the brake is applied to shift from the park position it is either the park release sensor (again, not a major ordeal) or the button on the shifter is broken.
