Is this an automatic or manual transmission?

Automatic

Can you check and see if the brake lights are working? Sometimes the fuse for the brake lights will go out and then the shift lock solenoid won't work.

Please check this and let me know.

Thank you.

Ok, thanks

Please give me just a moment to do a little research here. Basically it's stuck in park correct?

I'm sorry, I have to open this back up for the other experts. I don't have any good info on this. I think the brake light switch is going to be the issue here. This would cause the abs light to come on and it would stop the shift lock from working properly. I just have zero info so no way to prove it.

Please standby for another expert to pick up the question and don't reply to me or it will lock it back to me. Sorry I am not able to help with this.

Hi,to remove transmission from park there is a small cover on the shifter remove it and using a thin pen or screw driver press down to release from park,this will get you on your way.I believe you have a brake switch fault here there is a updated switch for this concern.You may still be under warranty if you have less than 36k ,if not bi could still help with installation if necessary
