    Check that the brake lights are working, if the brake light switch is bad, neither the shift lock mechanism or the brake lights will operate.
    If the brake light switch is working, have someone look at the shift lock system.

    I would first check your Brake Light Switch. Do your Brakes light work? Because that is the switch that releases the shift lever.
