If you can shift the linkage on the transmission into park and it holds in park but the shifter lever does not put the transmission in park this can indicate a fault with the shifter cable itself in most all cases that connects from the shifter lever to the transmission.I have seen this cable fail several times in the past before needing replaced for this issue here.
The cable corroded or breaks and sometimes stretches internally causing this issue.I would have this checked further to verify this is the cause and replaced as needed.
