Stuck Gearshift

Does anybody know why the automatic gearshift would start sticking?

It started yesterday and I couldn’t move it all today.

Probably one of the safety interlocks has failed. Normally, must you step on the brake before you can move the shifter?? Lots of Micky-Mouse linkage to go wrong…

I am going to try that, I’ll let you know how it went.

It worked. How would I keep the release button from getting stuck when I’m trying to get out of park?

Try cleaning and lubricating the shift mechanism. PB Blaster with an extension tube attached to the nozzle might be able to get in there and free up the stuck parts. Center console shifters are not very serviceable…
