Park neutral safety switch sounds like its failed. could be the brake switch or the solenoid in the center console. try checking fuses. if u step on the brake with the key on, you should hear a click in the center console. theres a solenoid in the that prevents shifting out of park unless the brake is applied. if no click, check the brake switch or the solenoid. also, has there been a recent starbucks syndrome accident, ie coffee spillage.
