In order to release brake shift lever, brake pedal must be applied first to electronicaly release shift solenoid. Are you appliying you brakes prior to moving shift lever? and vehicle must be running.
Same issue...not an idiot (answer above). Pretty sure it has to be some kind of wear,damage to the release mechanism - can it be replaced?
down on the steering column where the gear lever connects is a gasket move it, on the left at the connection you will see a button push it, thats the only way I do it when mine sticks. To bad I can't send a diagram
