I had the same problem after my car went into a transmission shop for some service. This might be the solution, it was with my car. Check the transmission shift cable. When mine finally failed, it was filled with rust.
You may be able to simply lubricate it somehow with something like WD40, but I'm not sure if it would work. If all else fails, you can have the shift cable replaced, which is what I had to do with my car after driving it for 2 years with that problem. By then I had worn out and warped the shifter and had to replace that too, as well as drive it around for a week without being able to get the transmission into park.
Good luck! If you have to take it to a shop, just tell them that your shift cable is going bad and you want them to make sure.

If it ios not the switch above the pedal, the solenoid below the shifter may have failed. There are 5 screws holding down the center console. Open the console to see some of the screws. Others may be hiding under an ash tray or door.
You don't have to take the console out completely as long as you can pull it up enough to see the solenoid that locks the shifter.

Testimonial: "Thanks Jturcotte - I appreciate all your help - very understanding and patience. "
The end of the shift cable has broken, there is a plastic ring at the transmission end of the cable that breaks. You will need to have it towed to the mechanic.
