2006 Volvo XC90 Question: Gear locked in park and not able to shift to Drive

This problem on my drive way. I have not driven the car since October 2010 until Jan 22 2011. I just was going to take it to errand and it would not move from Park to Drive position -
Answer 1
Sounds like an issue with the brake light switch on the brake pedal. -
Answer 2
On Volvos the shift position microswitch and the shift lock solenoid could be a problem if the brake lights are working. Zee -
