Frozen Auto Transmission Cable on 1999 Toyota Corolla

I have a 1999 Toyota Corolla that has a frozen shifter cable (auto trans). It will not go into "park" but still shifts into the other gears. Can it be adjusted or does it have to be replaced? Thank you in advance, Jim

I would get a new shift cable, they fray from the inside out and then get very hard to operate.

The floor shifter is easy to operate but it just won't go into the Park position. I read in the Tech manual there is an adjustment nut located under the battery plate. I haven't seen this complaint for the Corollas and wondered if it was caused because my mechanic just replaced the battery and may have knocked the shifter control unit.
