In order to shift out of Park, you need to step on the brakes first. When you step on the brakes, it releases the shift lock. This shift lock is some type of solenoid that actuates with electric current. The solenoid starts to wear out and deteriorate through time and wear. If it wont release from park, you can use the emergency shift lock release to shift out of park. You have to remove the small plastic cover on the base of the shifter and insert your key to release the shifter.































The owners manual has instructions to do this.
