Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.
It sounds more like a brake switch problem to me, so you should confirm this with a scan of the computer system in bidirectional mode testing the body module first.
We don't sell parts, just information like I gave to you. Most any parts store should have that switch though, you don't need a dealer for it.

No it does not, the brake switch is down at the pedal, not at the shifter. The job of the brake switch is to release the shifter.
Also, by use of the scan tool, you can also test the shift interlock solenoid which can also cause this issue. This solenoid gets its' command from the brake switch also, to release the shifter.

Right at the top of the brake pedal. You can see it looking up under the dash.
