2005 Chrysler 300 was parked in garage over night when we went to start vehicle it started just fine but it would not shift out of park to reverse to get out of garage. This happened on June 18 2011. Come to find out it was a spring that had broke off from a piece of plastic down in the shifter that had broke.
