The gear shift is stuck in Park, even though I can move the shifter.
It sounds like you have a broken or unattached shift cable going from the shifter to the transmission. Replacement of this cable would require console removal, and raising the vehicle; the job is quite intensive. An investigation of your car’s inability to shift out of Park by a qualified technician will be needed to diagnose the issue, and find the best path to repair.
