My car will not shift out of park.
A common issue is a faulty brake light switch. The switch controls two circuits one for the brake lights themselves and the other tells the transmission the brake is depressed and it is ok to shift out of park. Another possibility could be the brake pedal itself. You may want to enlist the help of a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will have the expertise to diagnose the brake light switch and pedal assembly and determine why your car is unable to move from park.
