    It could be the brake pedal position switch. It sends a signal saying the pedal is depressed allowing you to shift from park into gear. http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view;_ylt=A0PDoS4ge... It works with the shift interlock preventing shifting out of park without a foot on the brake pedal.
