Selector Lever

Hi everyone, new_kid on the block here.
I have a 2000 323i 4dr sedan automatic. With 88k miles.

I pulled my lever knob off to get behind the center console. I read that I am to just pull hard and not twist it. Now that I am all done working, I replaced the knob and now the lever would not budge from park. I double-check all wire connections, all connected. I am wondering if this is a security lock or something.. Help! What have I done wrong?

You should have done it in neutral, who the hell told you park?, Right I presume you have fired her up put foot on brake etc.???, If you have done next.....disconnect the battery for approx 10 mins, re-connect and see what happens.

Thanks. Ok then. Did that and still nothing. I screwed up ig time now, but we all have to learn at some point. I am wondering if the car may need reprogramming. Suggestions???

Ok, can you send me a photo of the knob? to: bird978@btinternet.com as in the long bit that comes out of the shift

as I think you may have broken a bit off the bottom of the knob, Dont panic!!!, if you cant send a pic does it look like theres a bit broken off???
