Default 02 gmc sierra wont shift into park

my 02 sierra 4x4 just randomly decided it doesnt want to shift into park today never had a problem before now. you can shift it up into park but the indicator says reverse and the truck still rolls, but i can roll underneath it and push the linkage the rest of the way into park. any advice is the linkage on these adjustable

i dont believe its adjustable. i noticed my old 700r4 cable stretched out and park was hard sometimes and it was hard to get in low 1. i would see if anyone you know might have an extra cable you can try. but if you can shift it from underneath then it shows luckily its not the trans. either the cable stretched out or something with the shifter on the column itself.

I have a friend that this happened to. Ends up the shift cable outer jacket fell apart enough where you couldn't get park no matter what you did. Put a new cable in and all was well.

The column is fairly easy. Look at the new cable to see how it attaches. Follow it under the carpet and pull the drivers seat out to get to the hole it goes thru in the floor. the trans end is easy, pop the cable off the trans, pull the clip on the cable mount and press the sides in to get it loose. Reverse to install.

Might have had 1/2 hour in my buddy's.
