To the right of the shifter is a little blockoff plate that says something like "shift lock" next to it. Remove it and push down with a screw driver or thin item with your foot on the brake, key on and try to move the shifter. Should work for you.

NP. When you have a chance. Pull the console (we both know how much fun that is..lol) and check on the white lever piece. I had an issue pop up with mine and pulled the white lever off. It'* worked great since then. I'm pretty sure the lever is the piece being moved to get it out of lock, but hey.. who am I to argue with working.

Well, I have the same problem with my column shifter ['96 LeSabre]. Sometimes I can't get it out of park. Yes, I have my foot on the brake and the engine is running. There'* an interlock somewhere that'* not working.
