Can't move automatic transmission out of park. Used "shift lock" on console to move shifter. Called Suzuki Service. He said " it sounded like a blown fuse. He asked if I had brake lights [and I don't] and told me the name of an actuator fuse. I looked in the operator's manual and could not find the fuse he mentioned. Pulled the brake light fuse and it is ok. Scheduled a repair visit.
I have the same problem. Car was put in park and now it seems like the automatic trans shifter is not engaging to shift out of park. Any help out there would be appreciated.

stuck in park. i was able to shift the car manually at the transmission. hit the release [ inside the console] and the lever moves but does not shift. can't find a manual for the car hope some one else has had the problem and can help.
wont shift out of park without disengaging the release inside the console (through the opening on the left of console)
Cannot shift from Park, (locked in PARK).
Couldn't pull it out of park for a time. Turned off engine and put on brakes and tried to take it off park again. Did after about four to five tries.
Won't shift from park
