check the brake interlock switch, its down by the brake pedal arm. If its bad, replace it, it wont let the shifter interlock open and you cant move the shifter.

There is a harness plug under the master cylinder. This harness controls the brake safety switch. It will get soaked with fluid then quit working. Some wire dry spray and harness cleaning will make it work then change the fuse. It will not be a permanent fix as it gets wet fast. There is a recall on these harnesses. The recall was for fire starting with this issue. The dealer will fix the problem for free. Their fix moves the sensor and looks like they just rig something to make it work, but it does and it was free.

I wrote a possible answer for this issue just above. Sometimes it is because there is to much pressure on the fly wheel to pull the shifter, parked on a hill will do it like mentioned earlier. Otherwise we would need more information from you, if those will not fix the issue.
