For the short term and as a temporary measure, the shift lever can be released by depressing shift lock override button which is in a small hole next to the shifter, typically covered with a small piece of plastic.
A permanent fix is needed though. The transmission shifter has a safety interlock. You must depress the brake to release the interlock in-order to shift into a drive or reverse gear. This system is powered by electricity. The fuse may be blown. Check the fuses for faults. The brake pedal / brake light circuit must be functioning in order to put the car in gear. Check the blue 10amp brake light fuse. Make sure the wiring in the trunk does not have breaks that may cause the fuse to blow

It could be the relay, which is a yellow box located under the carpeting in the trunk on the left side. It is a problem common to your model. Also, check the brake switch's (behind the brake pedal) functionality (12V present with key at ACC or ON and continuity between wires when button engaged).
i hope this helps

Testimonial: "Wow! I would have never found the problem without you guys. It was the relay located in the trunk. Thanks!"
I am assuming you already changed the brake pads. Make sure that the backing plate is on the backside of the pads it wouldnt hurt to put some disc brake quiet (spray) on the backside of the pads. also make sure all of your caliper shims are in place and not rubbing on the rotor. Make sure rotors have been resurfaced or replaced if they are too thin. any imperfections will cause vibration which will cause noise. Some cheap brake pads will squeek no matter what you do. in this case I recomend ceramic brake pads the best price I have found is at pep boys this type of brake pad is superior and very quiet, stays cooler, less brake dust on rims and much better braking. I use pep boys ceramic pads on my customers cars and have had no complaints from them. where with cheaper quality pads it is hit and miss that is why i tell my customers up front if they want the cheaper pads they should expect some noise from time to time and not to be alarmed. It doesnt mean anything is wrong just too much vibration and heat while braking

You need to get a manual. Try the Haynes manual for your car. Try autozone; generally available for around $20. This is not the type of thing that can be covered here in enough detail to do you any good. You need a picture.
