    There is a solenoid that releases the shifter lever from park when the brake pedal is depressed. So it can be the solenoid or can be the brake pedal switch.

    thanks. i can bypass with a screwdriver, but does the problem itself suggest there is some other problem(s) with the transmission or something else?
