Sounds like you have a brake lamp switch which is going bad. The brake lamp switch supplies power to the 'shifter release' solenoid. If this switch is malfunctioning, it will not let you take it out of "Park." Simple to replace.

Can't get the gear shift to come out of park.It acks like it is locked this is the first time this has happened.I was wonderig if there is a lock some where?This is a 2002 hyundai accent we just got it...

The shift lock solenoid attached to the interiors shifter near the cable is at fault
You need to replace it or disengage all apperatis to eliminate its functions
This solenoid is used only when you apply your foot on the brake so it releases to shift. It will be located inside the console near the gate for the park lock area. I always disconnect the plastic arm and remove it so I never need to depress the brake to shift

Ford Expedition 2001 that wont shift out of Park

Shift Interlock System
The shift interlock system prevents the shifting from PARK unless the brake pedal (2455) is depressed. The shift interlock system consists of a shift lock actuator (3Z719) mounted at the base of the steering column tube (3514). If the ignition switch (11572) is in the RUN position, the shift lock actuator is continually on unless the brake pedal is depressed.

Thier is also the shift lock actuator ! plus wiring . You have a short to ground on that circuit . Do you know how to Find a short ? videos on youtube .
None of the power windows work ? Check for broken wires inside the rubber boot from the body to drivers door !
Videos on youtube for testing power window circuits .

I have a 2001 MDX and I cant get it to go into gear. When I depress the brake, I cant move the shifter from park into R,N or any of the D's....what do you think is the problem

Take a look at the shift lock. When you depress the brake is there an audible click heard coming from the center column? If not there could be a few possible problems. Either your brake pedal switch is defective(brake lights coming on?) the wiring to the shift lock is open or shorted, or the shift lock itself is defective. A quick fix is to remove the small plastic cover just right of the shifter that is the shift interlock manual release. Using a small pocket screwdriver depress the white plastic button and move the shifter.
