    You need to be able to apply the brakes for the shifter to be released from park so yes, I would think that's your problem.

    If you want people to read your thread, in the future I recommend using a thread title that is more descriptive than "03 CTS". I've edited the title of this thread for you.

    As for the problem you're having, what do you mean by "unhooked braking system"?
    '05 Stealth Grey CTS-V, Hyper Silver Linea Corse Venetos w/Continental ExtremeContact DWs (summer), black Team Dynamics ProRace 1.2 wheels with 275/35-18 R-compounds (track), Hyperblack Rota Torques (winter), KW Variant3s, V2 front brakes, Hotchkis rear sway bar, EPS cam, TEA-ported 243 heads, FAST92 intake w/LS2 TB, JBA Camaro/G8 1-3/4" shorty headers w/JBA cat pipes, Corsa exhaust, UUC motor and tranny mounts, UUC shifter, MAPerformance trailing arms, Specter cradle bushings, etc...

    I don't know what you mean by "unhooked the braking system" but it sounds like shifting out of park while your car doesn't have a functioning braking system is a good idea
