replace the brake pedal switch, it is mounted in front of the brke pedal, this is what makes the silanoid work, if it is not working the silanoid will not.

jlcoffell1: From your description, it sounds as though there has been a power source supplied which is not suppose to be present all the time. If someone over rode the interlock, they may have supplied power to the shift solenoid so that it would be the same as though you were applying the brake. It could be as simple as, who ever bypassed the system, picked the power source from the ignition circuit from that control unit. The ignition circuit is a green wire. It goes hot when the ignition switch is turned on. You would look for it to be jumped some how to either the same side of the control unit as the green wire going in, but it would be tied in with a red/green wire. If they carried it to the other side of the control unit, it would tie into the Blue/orange wire.
This is where I would look first.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Let me know if you need more help.

SOURCE: My 2001 Mazda tribute column
The same thing happened to my 2001 Mazda Tribute. It was stuck in Neutral. The shifter cable fell off the little metal post under the steering column. To fix it I removed the plastic column covers. Put the round end of the cable back on the little silver colored post. Then secured it on the post with a ring type push nut from Ace Hardware. Total cost of repair was sixty cents. The cables are not always broken. They just fall of the little post.

http://www.custombilletstore.com/product_p/1028.htm I know this is late but I had the same problem. The release wouldn't work either. I had to remove the shifter and take the cover off. A spring broke off the pink lever in the front of the shifter. The shifter would move side to side but couldn't be pulled back. The above link sells a replacement part that might work. Thanks to petevpi.
