Did you check your fuses? Other ideas are brake pedal switch or poor ground. There should be a small tab to reset interlock on shifter, owner's manual should have that info. Good Luck!

Checked and replaced all fuses concerning the breaking and shiftier system as well as replacing the keep alive fuse for shits and grins. Tested both break pedal switches and both are working fine. I have tried and succeeded in resetting the shift lock to no avail.
