gear shift on steering column stuck or broke?

Question Description

While parking in driveway(2006 pontiac montana), I put in park, or so I thought took foot off brake, rolled backwards, braked looked down I'm in reverse. Tried to put in park and the lever won't move up anymore and when try to move to neutral or drive nothing would move...still in reverse. Had to turn off engine so now I can't start the car and the emergency brake is on? What could have happed to the gear shift on the steering column?

 

 

Final Answer

wiggle your key to make sure you have the steering column locked or not - if the key is not all the way turned off the car will lock out of park (or any gear).
