Check to see if the brake lights work, if they don't work check the "stop" fuse in the fuse panel at the lower left of the dash under the cover. If the brake lights don't work it won't come out of park.

That wasn't it, but thank you anyway. We've gotten it now. The low power level of the battery caused a glitch. Taking it out of overdrive and putting it back in fixed the issue.
