Did some research and found out it was the brake light switch. Was even able to test it with a paper clip before I got the part. Thanks to http://en.allexperts.com/q/Chrysler-Repair-807/tail-lights.htm. Thanks so much Roland!!!!!!!!

Back Again! Got the brake light switch and small part is different from old one and can't get it in. Not sure if this is even the problem. Have pushed the tab to try to over ride and get it out of park but won't work. Cant even get it out of garage or towed. Help!!!!!
