It wont go into gear because you have no power to your brake light switch or your brake light switch is bad. test your fuses with a test light or volt meter if all are good replace brake light switch.Its probably a blown fuse if this was helpful please leave good feed back

SOURCE: need to replace brake switch

It's normally located right at brake pedal arm, up toward top where it pivots. You'll see a switch with a plunger that gets pushed in when pedal is released. Usually pretty easy to do, but you have to stand on your head sometimes to do it. ha-ha

If your Trailblazer does not have rear seat audio, check the 15A RADIO FUSE in the I/P fuse panel. If your Trailblazer has rear seat audio, check 15A RADIO FUSE 41 and 10A HVAC B FUSE 36 in the rear fuse block. You may have to use a different adapter to get the radio to work.

Dash lights arent working on a 99 explorer, fuses are fine and all the other lights work. quit working after installation of aftermarket stereo

OK, that radio use a straight or constant 12 volts a ignition 12 volts and grounds. now your radio ground might be connected to the park light wires of the car. that wire will should grounds ( - ) but when you turn on the park light it turns to 12 volts to illuminate the dashboard gear shift etc. if that is the case you're wondering where you will get grounds to collect the radio, well the antenna wire has ground, so plug and play, and the frame where the radio goes has metal, which is also grounds. disconnect the black wire from the radio and that wire you can test by turning the park lights on and you will get 12 volts
