    Having the pan off shouldn't change the mechanical shifting, are you sure the linkage wasn't disconnected or effected in some way?

    park is mechanical and should engage no matter what. if you had the valve body off you may have a rod that fell out of place.

    1. You could put the pan back on and see if the transmission will shift to park.
    2. I assume you have Anti-theft locking system on your car. When the Ignition key is remove it automatically locks the Transmission preventing the car from being moved/rolled, towed etc.
    All this for a Transmission ATF change?
