I have read that there is no over ride system on your Lancer . Some times there is a cable on the brake pedal that allows you to shift out of park. There may be a solenoid on the shifter itself that's defective. If it is a floor shifter try looking at the side of the shifter to see. Some one told me they had to use a flat screw driver to push a lever that allowed him to shift.. Hope this helps

thanks for the response Widgmaster.
well I somehow managed to get it out of park. But now it won’t go to park because of that key is now locked in ignition. I park it on N(Neutral) and use handbrake.

I had my key stuck in the ignition.... In my case I took off the cover around the key … there was a small do dad held in place by a screw that when the key is turned it locks in place. There was a cable that attached to this and ran down to my shifter. I removed it from both ends remembering where every thing went.. The cable was very stiff so I sprayed WD in it and kept pulling it back and forth. A lot of dirt came out of it but I finally got it freed up and put every thing back in place. Have not had any trouble since.. Your Lancer may be a bit different but its worth checking this out..
