Okay - it's been 20 minutes. I'd like to refund my deposit!
It was estimated to be 8 minutes or less.
I don't really have the money for this

I am very sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online tonight and saw your question.
When it will not come out of park, you need to check to see if the brake lights are working. If not, replace the brake light switch as it is also part of the shift interlock system. If the brake lights do work, then it is a faulty shift interlock solenoid at the shifter assembly and will need to replace it.
Once again, I am sorry that you were not helped earlier. I can only answer as soon as I come online.

Thank you for your reply, but it took so long - I took it to the mechanic. I would like a refund as I am giving the mechanic the money. :-(
