You have to press with a reasonable amount of pressure on the brakes to activate a switch. Once the switch is activated, current is sent to a solenoid that releases the shift lock. If either the shift lock or the switch is not working properly, you will not be able to get the vehicle out of park. Usually it's the brake pedal switch... check it for proper adjustment.

I agree with Racer_X. Sounds like that might be a good place to start looking.

No I didn't. Hope mine don't start that stuff. But at least I know where to look now. Thanks judge.
