Hello and thank you for asking JA,

The first thing to check for would be the brake lights coming on when the pedal is depressed.IF not, check fuse for brake lights. IF the lights work, you would have a problem with the shift interlock system...probly the solenoid under the shift console..This prevents the shifter from being moved without the engine running...

I hope this has helped,Tony
