Does it shift out of Park?
If not check stop light fuse - shift interlock and stop lights are a common circuit If it does shift out of Park then shift linkage may need adjustment Try turning key to first position (Unlock) without engine running and the shift to neutral to start vehicle and then shift to Drive
