Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** aster tech here to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your input to my questions so I can help you better. I read your notes and have a question before we start. Do you have a volt or muti-meter and can you make some checks. If you checked all fuses with a test light or volt meter to make sure they are ok and your brake lights work , then you have to get to the shift lock solenoid to check the power there.In the mean time you can bypas the lock solenoid by pushing the release in manually , just remove the cover shown in the chart I send you and use a small tool to push down to shift out of park.

this should help you locate yours , just remove the top cocer and press a small tool down to release it. This is only temp untill you repair the fault.
