Check the brake pedal switch and see if you haev 12 volts on both sides when pressing the brake.Sounds like a bad switch.

Yes the brake light switch being bad would cause it not to come out of park so that you are not driving around with no brake lights.

would it be the switch or fuse
Expert:  Tim replied 7 years ago.
If you have power on side of switch and not the other the switch is bad. If you do not have power at all than the fuse may be bad. Fuse 6 in the interior fuse box.You can jump the 2 wires at the switch and the brake lights should come on and it should come out of park.That will tell you the switch is bad.
