I parked on a hill and my car is stuck in Park. I used a pin to unlock it from Park, but now I have to use the pin to get it out of Park all of the time.
The shift interlock cylinder in the shift linkage may not be getting a signal from the brakes, or the cylinder might have gone bad. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, run an inspection to diagnose the cause of your car being stuck in Park in order to identify and quote the repairs needed.
