Angry Column shift stuck in park - help

89 pickup 2WD 4cyl Auto Tran - column shift

Truck was parked for 3 months on level ground, started up fine after charging the battery but can't get it out of Park. Tried it with engine running and not, with brake pressed [brake light works] and not, tried while rocking it. Any suggestions appreciated including any way to disable park lockout so I can move it to a better place to work on it.

did not even though a column shift was available from Toyota.
if you had a floor shift I could tell your where the release for the lock out is.

There are column shift automatic Toyota Trucks of this vintage, but on 2 Wheel Drive models only.

Some 1984-1988 2 Wheel Drive Trucks with an automatic transmission had floor shifters and others had column shifters.

I think all 1989-1995 2 Wheel Drive Trucks with an automatic transmission were all column shifts.

My 1987 2 Wheel Drive has a column shift, but does not have any sort of lock out. I can move the shift lever any time I want.

I am not sure if the newer column shift Trucks (1989-1995) had a lock out or not. Do you happen to have the owner's manual? It should mention it if your truck does have a lock out feature.
