Car is stuck in grocery store parking lot

Won't change out of park. Assuming either BLS or aux battery... Is that probably right?
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 1 year ago.
brake light switch yes,
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 1 year ago.
aux battery is only used to put the shifter into park when the battery dies.
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 1 year ago.
have you confirmed if the brake lights come on when pressing the brakes?
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 1 year ago.
what does it say when pressing the shifter stalk?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No warning lights on dash, doesn't do anything when I move the shifter up or down for reverse or drive
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I haven't checked tail lights but plan to go back and do that this evening, had to catch a ride home to take care of other matters. Planning to go back soon
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 1 year ago.
right but does it say press the brake or anything? the other issue can be the steering column module or the shifter itself. they were all common.
