Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

With the brake pedal pressed are the brake lights on? If so then we need to work on the shift interlock on the shifter to address this. Have you tried the manual release which is covered in the owners manual, if so did that allow you to shift from park and drive the vehicle?
