Is the vehicle parked on a hill? Sometimes when parking on a hill, if the park position has been selected before the parking brake is applied the weight of the vehicle resting on the gear box locks it in park. Pull brake on and jack up one of the rear wheels and see if that helps. Also try putting foot on footbrake if vehicle fitted with safety lock.

If it's an auto, you could just get an aftermarket cable shifter from a speed shop.

I have a 1992 Ford ranger with a manual transmission. A while back, my truck's shifter knob just came loose.It's all plastic, and I think it was just held on by pressure. I don't know what type your truck's shifter knob would be, since I really haven't driven any newer rangers.

your syncros might be worn or the shifter might need a new plasice ball on the end or the whole shifter needs rebuilt

The only way to copy another person's place would be to build it from scratch, unless they have it not copy locked. If the place is not copy locked, simply play solo on the place, and click the save button in the upper left to save the place to your computer.

Years ago I have 93 ranger. In it you would pry the shift pattern plastic thing out of the stick and there was a screw or nut (been so long cant remember which one now). That is how I changed mine.

the clutch release could have broken , the brakes could have locked, the engine could have blown, the transmission could have broken. These are mostly things that have happened to our ranger. It depends what you mean by stops

This happened once to my van. There is a pin inside the transmission that locks the wheels when the shifter is in "Park". That pin had broken off and was bouncing around inside the transmission and eventually jammed it so that the shifter was stuck in "Drive". I had the get my transmission rebuilt. I hope yours is a simpler problem. Perhaps there is a simple problem with the linkage between the steering column and the outside of the transmission.

Sandstone, its minerals arn't locked in place like Granite's.

I would probably take it to the place you bought it from. There has to be some way to figure out what your lock code was.

Make sure the shifter handle is fully engaged in park. On my '92 caravan, I have to push the shifter up and forward again after putting it in park, to make sure it's fully in park. My ignition switch won't turn off all the way or door locks work until I do that. Also, you might have a loose shifter mechanism...jiggle it while turning the ignition switch at the same time.

Not really describing answer , but i would assume you shifter cables have broken

Make sure the hubs are locked in, if they are manual hubs, be sure they are fully locked, if your transfer case is electronic I would check the fuse for it. Make sure you are getting power through the wires at the transfer case.

Check the neutral safety switch on the shifter. If you place the shifter into neutral or push the shifter harder into the park position, this may change the switch position to allow it to start. There is a recall on the grand Cherokees for this switch.AnswerCheck the battery, i had the same problem once and it turned out to be one of the cells in my battery had gone bad
