The shifter on my 2002 Rendezvous slides but does not shift any gears. It is stuck in park.
First... Is there a button or something that I can do as a quick fix? I need to be able to move it out of the street.

Second... What is the issue and solution?

Thank you in advance.

have someone move the shifter inside the vehicle while you watch the shift cable on the trans and see if the cable is moving. The cable or the end of the cable where it connects to the shift lever may be broken. If the cable does not move while the shift lever does then you are going to have to take the cover off the shifter and see what is broken.

If you have to move the vehicle (for emergency purposes) you can have someone sit in the vehicle and hold the brake on while someone else manually shifts the trans by moving the shifter at the trans. Just remember to make sure you PUT IT BACK INTO PARK when you are done moving it so it doesn't roll away after you move the vehicle. USE YOUR PARKING BRAKE when you are done moving also. I can't stress enough to make sure you have the trans in park when you are done. Test to make sure you are in park on the trans before you leave the vehicle. And put the parking brake on as a secondary back up. If you leave the vehicle and it rolls away later you will liable for whatever damage happens or if someone gets hurt. (IT DOES HAPPEN, BE SAFE NOT SORRY)

Or just have a tow truck that can dolly the vehicle to a repair facility.

Thank you for the response.

How do I remove the shift cover?
Where exactly is the shift cable?

do you have a column shifter or a console shifter?
