Best Answer

Is the engine running?! If so, you've got a rough idle. Could be bad ignition timing, or the ignition (suppression) wires are worn out. Or perhaps you've got a vacuum leak. If the car really shakes when you rev the engine, you mighta busted an engine mount.

Make sure your stop lights are working, same fuse controls both interlock and lights There is a mechanism that locks the vehicle in park until you press the brake. If that switch is misaligned or any of the mechnaism is broken you will not be able to get the vehicle out of park. Normal operation would require that you press the brake and you would hear a faint click, but you really have to be listening for it. Then you should be able to take the vehicle out of park. Check the alignment of the switch. It is attached to the brake pedal mechanism.
