Change the fluid and the trans filter; a dirty trans filter can cause this.
Foot on brake pedal or linkage to trans is loose or out of adjustment.
As a safety design, you do need to step on the brake pedal to shift out of park. If you are doing this and still can't shift, there may be something wrong in the transmission.
Sounds like it has either: Leaked all the oil out or HAs had serious failure durring start up, it is common for a pump failure to happen at start up when the oil is cold.
the 4t60-e transmission uses a shift modulator that can be found at most auto part stores. however i believe the '99 regals use the 4t65-e transmission which are not vacuum operated therefor to up the shift pressure you will need a tuner or a shift kit.

You don't need to replace any bulbs or fuses. The problem lies within the circuitboard, which I am able to refurbish. Contact me a ANCTechnologies at hotmail

If the transmission won't shift out of first gear on a 1992 Buick Roadmaster, it could indicate the transmission gears are seized. It can also indicate a low fluid level.
You have a serious problem in either:the electrical system that controls the computerThe inside of the transmission itself.It need to be checked by a knowledgeable person with the correct equipment
Column shift? at the bottom of the steering column near the firewall Floor shift? Either under shift console or at side of transmission
Performance shift basically makes the transmission shift at a higher RPM, essentially giving you better acceleration. The only drawback is that in the long run you will have lower gas mileage. But that doesn't really matter if you're just trying to keep up with crazy stop and go traffic, or merging onto an interstate, or something like that. Anybody reading this care to add anything? Maybe someone else can give a more technical answer?
