the only button I know by the shifter is the for economy setting and power setting..from what I understand it changes the parameters in the computer control module to give the car more power and pep on the power setting or on economy setting it changes them to where the engine runs more efficiently. there is also a button that is usually on the dash near the shifter that controls the traction control if your car is equiped with that option, but that is usually on the dash,but I have seen them next to the shifter...if it is that button when you engage it you will get a light on the instrament panel showing traction control engaged. Turbo button when used drops the trany shifts into a lower gear to allow for quicker speed pickup time. but be careful not to over RPM the motor. keep a close eye on the RMP gauge.

Perhaps your brake interlock isn't working. That's the deveice that releases the shifter when you depress the brake. Most cars have a manual override. You probably will remove a cover and press a button with a pen or screwdriver. It should be near the shifter. Check your owner's manual for details.

Why would the shifter in an automatic 93 Subaru Impreza not release to go into gear?

I have had the same problem with my '93 Impreza. The button on the automatic shifter will not depress to take it out of park. There is an override option in the owner's manual but I think the real problem is the brake light sensor. Ocassionaly, when I can actually get it out of park, you can hear a clicking noise when the brake petal is pressed, this is the shifter-lock releasing. It must be the sensor for the brake petal going bad.
