Hello. The gear shift lever can become stuck in park for a variety of reasons. If one of the steering column components was not installed properly then that could be a possible reason as to why the vehicle is not shifting out of park. I would try to secure the solenoid properly to see if that has any effect on the shifting. A few other things to check would be any and all transmission linkage, as well as the stoplight switch, neutral safety switch, and the transmission mounted shift solenoids. it may also be possible that electrical issues are causing the problems. I would recommend having a professional technician, such as one from YourMechanic, come to your location to (determine why the vehicle is not shifting into gear)[https://www.yourmechanic.com/services/car-does-not-shift-from-park-to-drive-inspection].
