I have a 2002 Ford Mustang with an automatic transmission. When I go to put in gear from park the button on the shifter is extremely hard to push in and therefore, difficult to get out of park.

The button doesn’t do this when I put the vehicle in any other gear. What could the problem be?

There is almost certainly a switch that is attached to the brake pedal that allows for the gear shift to be released when the brake is pushed and will not let it out of gear if the brake is not being pressed. This is a safety feature that was mandated for all automatic vehicles in the early 1990s.
