HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

With the brake lights working, the brake switch which is part of the interlock is good, which means the problem is with the shift interlock solenoid and it will need to be replaced. It should run around 275 to 300£ parts and labor to replace

If you plan to repair yourself, I will need the last 8 of the vin number to pull the directions
