Right now my 2006 Sebring is stuck in my driveway. I cannot get the gear shift out of Park. The car starts with no problem, I put my foot on the brake to move the shift, but it doesn't move!!!!!

when car is cold slow to go into gear, have to rev engine and then jerks into gear. Made a whinning sound as well, flushed trans and replaced filter and fluid. This seemed to fix the sound but still slow to shift into gear when cold.

Paid for rebuilt transmission and it still "downshifts" from D to 2nd gear, sometimes will not go forward but will drive in reverse. Too many miles I guess.
found my gear shifting to be a linkage issue covered under a 2000 recall from Chrysler. Problem solved, no charge
does not shift past 3rd?
The car jump in stop, and the car shifting a fixed when turn off.
My Daughters 2004 Sebring won't engage in any gear when it starts getting cold roughly 38°. it will eventually go into gear if you sit with it in reverse or D long enough. We had the transmission fluid changed & a complete flush to no avail. We haven't had it repaired as of right now.

The car starts. The shifter moves from park to drive or reverse, and nothing happens.
Delayed shifting from park to reverse or from park to drive. It doesn't happen all the time but most certainly at inopportune times. Its still not fixed.

Vehicle parked and does not respond to moving the shifter.
