Why wont my car shift out of park? The car starts, but the gearshift is stuck. on 2005 Chrysler Pacifica

My car will crank up if I put a key into it, but when I try to move the gearshift from park to reverse, it's almost like its jammed. I have my foot on the break, and I've tried shutting down and restarting the car multiple times. I've tried releasing the E-brake, and trying to move the gearshift..

The shift interlock solenoid is most likely bad. Chrysler has problems with these.
