Can't engage shifter from park?

I have the similar situation on my shifter on my 1991 pontiac sunbird 2.0 Liter. The shifter was kinda loose last two year, but it shifted fine. However, 2 days ago. When I put in "Park" gear, it was still moving forward, I put in "Rear" gear, it felt like in "Park", when I put in "Drive" gear, it felt like in "neutral". And the shifter is sometimes very loose, but back to normal when I put the shifter back and forth. I took it to a transmission store, they found out the "shift linkage cable" from the shift to the transmission was broken. I changed it today and so far no problem.

Is your transmission an automatic, or a manual? I guess in either case, I'd suspect the shifter cable, or it's adjustment. Of course, something inside the transmission may have failed. Take your car to a good mechanic and have the problem diagnosed.

What should you do if your Pontiac grand am transmission is having problems shifting from park into drive what could be wrong?

It's called a BTSI Switch. You have to have your foot on the brake in order to press the button on the shifter to be able to shift out of Park. If the button on the shifter will not depresss, it is probably just that. It is integral to the shifter. You have to get the WHOLE unit. Take a friend to a junkyard and pull the whole assy. I did and it wasn't hard. Works perfect
