Q: Car stuck in park

My car is stuck in park.

First of all, be sure that you are fully depressing the brake pedal. With modern day vehicles, the shifter will not move out of park without the brake pedal depressed as a standard safety feature. If this is not fixing the issue, a proper inspection of your transmission should be carried out by a qualified technician such as the ones offered here at YourMechanic. Due to the fact that there can be multiple issues causing your particular problem a professional opinion would be the best way to go. Mechanical linkage failure could be a possibility. Another possibility could be a failed brake pedal sensor, in this case the computer doesn't see the brand pedal sensor depressed and will not release to allow movement out of park.
