More than likely it is the shift interlock solenoid releasing the shifter. On newer cars it is necessary to have the brake pedal depressed before you can shift out of park if you have a center console type shifter.

    I have checked the fuses inside the car and all check out ok. The brake lights are the only ones that aren't working and the engine is running fine.
