2000 Other Mazda Models 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 87000 miles

I went to shift my car into drive this morning, and it wouldn't go into drive. I shook the shifter while holding brake down heard a pop then the shifter moved into drive without me putting my foot on the brakeand now it wont let me take the key out its stuck in the acc position unless I pull the room fuse and it pop it out.

Sounds like the shift lock solenoid is broken and causing the jam in the column. You will need to get under the left side of the dash to visually inspect the solenoid for damage

Then you need to gain access to the shifter to check the solenoid. If the key wouldnt turn, that is usually an indicator of the shifter not being all the way in park. Something down there is jamming it up, possibly the lock solenoid. My software said that is where the solenoid is, kind of difficult when you cant actually look at the car.
