There is no cable. But you have to have foot on brake to shift out of Park, and it's same switch controls brake lights

OK I took the switch off and tested the wire to the switch and I'm not getting any power to the switch

And fuse is good? But that's it...like I say it's the same reason it won't come out of Park. A so-called safety feature, so the car won't move unintentionally when put in gear. I can pull up which fuse it is if you are not SURE it's good.
