Are you by any chance parked on a hill hard up against a curb? just a thought..if you are you are going to have to relieve the pressure from the tire which will in turn release your steering, then wiggle on wheel then it will come out

Are your brake lights out too? If so, it's going to be the brake light switch. Otherwise it'll be the shifter. The problem is the car "thinks" it's in gear or you've got your foot on the brake, when you don't. HTH. -Jim
