In order to release brake shift lever, brake pedal must be applied first to electronicaly release shift solenoid. Are you appliying you brakes prior to moving shift lever? and vehicle must be running.

Same issue...not an idiot (answer above). Pretty sure it has to be some kind of wear,damage to the release mechanism - can it be replaced?
