Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

If you do hear a click from the shifter when pressing and releasing the brake pedal then the brake interlock is working electrically, but there may be a failure in the shifter preventing it from releasing. You may also have a bad shift cable or an internal problem in the transmission.

Were you having trouble moving the shifter before this happened?
