    Check that your brake lights work if not check fuse 7 and then check that the green red and black red wire are both live when the brake pedal is pressed if not the brake light switch is bad, after that there is a relay and shift lock solenoid in the circuit that need to be tested. I think there is a small button next to the shift lever that if you press it down will allow you to manually get the car out of park.

    Thank you so much! I will let you know if this works, which I'm sure it will. Do you know how much the solenoid cost if it needs to be replaced?
