Sounds like the unit is being parked on an incline. If this is the case, when you come to a stop before shifting into ark engauge the parking brake. This will keep the parking pawl in the transmission from getting into a bind. Before releasing the parking brake when you wish to drive again shift into drive before releasing the brake. if this does not solve your problem you may have internal transmissin damage.

What would cause the transfer case shifter to not shiftto any gear?

There is a part called the Shifter Sheet by Suzuki. This rubber part sits below the shifter ball in the top of the t-case. When it dries up and crumbles away the t-case shifter can get stuck. A new part is only a few dollars and is easy to replace. If you have this issue, you also probably have a sloppy shifting 5 speed transmission. A new "shifter bolt" will fix this issue.

Check the switch on the brake pedal that allows the transmission shifter to move into gear. If this switch/cable is broken the shifter doesn't know the brake is pressed so it will not allow shifter to move. It is a safety feature... a good one too.

2002 S430 Mercedes Benz will not move of out park?

Most likely cause is that you have a bad shifter module, which is the shifter itself. I've seen lots of these, try and play with the shifter to get it out of park, and make sure you have the brake pedal depressed. If you can get it out of park take it to a repair shop this way, and leave the shifter in neutral if you have to turn the car off, that way you can still start the car, and still move the shift lever to drive.

What would cause your shifter to become loose and not lock into any gear on your 2005 Jeep Wrangler?

It may just be a screw came loose underneath your gear shifter. That is what happened to me. Just slide the stuff up to the top of your gear shifter and look underneath. If one of the bolts is udone, just simple put it back on.
