My fiat will not go out of park as I shift it in gears it stays in park...the brake lights work fine so not a brake light switch??? Any help appreciated .

The shift lever moves, but the car remains in park, correct? If so, it's probably the shift cables have popped lose... a moderately common thing for many brands. The cables have a cheap plastic piece that snaps over the tranny linkage.

Yeh that’s all I did, needed the car ASAP and couldn’t wait for mechanic and it was Sunday...just a cotter pin and drilled a hole....better than any plastic part by far I think.

Definitely, but what did you use to take up the slack? I think that little plastic bushing fills about 1/2" of slack.
