Well I asked this one and now i will also answer it. It is one of the cables going from the shifter to the transmission broke
Once you remove the dust cover attached to your shifter, you'll see your shaft going into a gear box. There will be a pin to remove and this will allow you to pull the shifter right out. good luck
Mine did this and I found out it was the timing belt that needed to be changed.
I have the similar situation on my shifter on my 1991 pontiac sunbird 2.0 Liter. The shifter was kinda loose last two year, but it shifted fine. However, 2 days ago. When I put in "Park" gear, it was still moving forward, I put in "Rear" gear, it felt like in "Park", when I put in "Drive" gear, it felt like in "neutral". And the shifter is sometimes very loose, but back to normal when I put the shifter back and forth. I took it to a transmission store, they found out the "shift linkage cable" from the shift to the transmission was broken. I changed it today and so far no problem.
It is screwed on. Turn it counterclockwise. If it is an automatic there is a little horseshoe clip in the front of the shifter just pop it out and the shifter knob will pop off.
My Pontiac Sunbird wasn't starting for a friend of mine, and I had never had the problem. But I figured out that you have to be in First gear to start it, so check that. Also there might be a bad starter or something like that. Hope that helps Rovert

This is the locking mechanism that prevents you from shifting from park without depressing the brake pedal or pressing the release button to the right of the gear shifter.

The shifter linkage is loose or the drive gear is worn out.
the side of your transmission.. and its not a sensor its a gear.
Pull shifter down to first gear, and push the side button like a hell. But watch your face lol. Trust me.
There should be a button either on the side or on top of the gear shifter, just push the button
I have a 1998 Pontiac sunfire gt and it is on the side of the gear shifter (automatic) however, if it is standard then I am unsure.
your shifter linkage is probably broken.
Step down on the brake pedal as far as u can push it without forcing it too hard, then try to press it, if it doesnt work... then you will need to take it in and get a new shifter put it or maybe just the button looked at....
You can get them on e bay.
Just put the gear shifter into od and go.Just put the gear shifter into od and go.
The gear shifter has a retaining clip, just below the shifter knob. Hold the retaining clip in, on both sides of the shifter rod, and the shifter knob will come off.
Are you referring to the knob on the shifter or the entire stick. It will help if you can tell us more about what's goin' on. FriPilot
