    I guess you have a automactic transmission. If it is the brake lights must work properly to allow the gear shifter to come out of park. Check for blown fuse on brake light circuit...could have a bad stop lamp switch.

    check underneath the dash, on the brake pedal way up there you will see a little button looking sensor. that is going bad. its called a brake pressure sensor or something like that i had same problem.
