Well, what I would do if possible is connect the battery, then it will come out of park like usual as long as you turn the key on and press the brakes.The other option is to take the cover off the shifter and manually work the shift lock solenoid to get it out of park. I think it wasn't until 2000 that they actually put a small piece of plastic that you could remove on the shift cover. If it has it, it will be just above the drive position letters. If it does have it, pop it out, then push a small screwdriver in the hole while shifting back out of park.Try it out and let me know.Please let me know if there is any more I can do to help you from here.What happens next:Just Answer will now charge you for the full amount of your question.My goal is to provide you with 5-star service.
