    Are you sure you've checked all other possibilities? Parking brake? Sticking calipers?

    Later Prii have more complicated "park" systems. On the Gen 1 it's a really simple cable from the shift lever to the tranny. If you've moved the lever out of Park the tranny should really not be in Park ... unless the cable is somehow disconnected or something else really dead simple that you would see if you followed the cable and looked.

    If the 12 volt battery is too low for the shift interlock to work, you have to use the manual release lever so you can shift to neutral. I put the details in the other thread you started on the topic.
