The problem is the car think the park brake is on (intermittently). I would check the park brake switch, perhaps it's loose, or perhaps the park brake is pushed down to the first "click" spot. Also check the wiring connection to the switch, and the wiring nearby. Good luck!

It sounds like the shifter lock out solenoid has gone bad.It is a solenoid that releases the shifter when you push the brake pedal.

As cadman mention to check the fuse, and if there ok check your brake light switch along the brake peddle arm. Before you doany of that, turn your hazard light on to make sure that all your light's are not burnt out. Good luck

you either have air in the brake lines, a cracked brake line, or low of brake fluid... either way you will need to bleed the brakes
have you had the brake pads changed recently?

Things You'll Need
the vehicle on a level surface and make sure the front wheels are pointing
straight ahead. Make sure the vehicle is in park (or in gear if you have manual
transmission) and set the parking brake.
the pitman arm from the steering box from underneath the front of the vehicle
by turning the holding bolt in a counterclockwise direction with an adjustable
wrench. Place a pitman arm puller (available at auto parts stores) over the
pitman arm and tighten the nut on the puller in a clockwise direction with an
adjustable wrench until the pitman arm loosens from the steering box shaft.
Remove the pitman arm and the puller.

compartment with an adjustable wrench in a counterclockwise direction.
a torque wrench on the steering shaft and turn the wrench one complete turn.
Make sure the torque reading is approximately 2 inch pounds. Tighten the
adjusting nut on top of the steering box (it comes out of the center of the
lock nut) in a clockwise direction with an adjustable wrench one half turn if
the torque wrench reading is too low. Loosen the nut in a counterclockwise
direction if the reading is too high.
the steering shaft with the torque wrench again. Make adjustments to the
steering box adjusting nut as described in Step 4, if needed, until the correct
reading is obtained on the torque wrench.
sure the steering wheel is in the straight ahead position and reattach the
pitman arm to the bottom of the steering shaft on the steering box. Tighten the
holding nut in a clockwise direction with an adjustable wrench until the pitman
arm seats into place.
