Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT
Well I bought this car a while ago, and I thought it was weird that I didn't need to have my foot on the break to shift, then my friend told me my reverse lights didn't work, so I think there's and issue with my solenoid, I checked the BTSI and Back up light fuse, its fine, still no fix, its a huge annoyance, please help!
Yes it could be a relay, but it could also be two isolated problems. The shift will have a switch inside to send a signal either through a relay or directly to the reverse lights. I would suspect the switch. The switch itself may be good but it is not being depressed for some reason. The brake also has a switch. It may be working for the break light but not for lock out of the starter.

I do not know what you are looking at in the manual, but you probably heard a horrible noise when you put it into park, as the parking pawl tries to hold the car in place. Thist usually does not harm the transaxle. If the engine won't start then something else happened, perhaps the neutral safety switch was damaged or knocked out of adjustment. You might try to move the shifter back and forth and then back into park and then try to restart. If that doesn't work try to put the car in neutral to start. If you must have the car towed somewhere the repair should not be expensive, just have them reset the neutral safety switch.

a clip on the parking rod has most likley broke if you dissasemble the side of trans you probably will find the clip there some times it is possible to weld back very coltly unless you do it your self

SOURCE: reverse lights wont work
On the side of your transmission will be a switch with several wires coming out of it. This is your reverse switch that turns on your reverse lights and most likely needs to be replaced
