Auto transmissiom will not come out of park when you press the brake pedal, also the ABS light flashes after you press the brake pedal and the brake lights don't come on, but the gear shifter will move and the lights will work if you use the manual tab on the e-brake controller.

check that your brake pedal sensor is clicking when you hit the pedal if its not than its either bad or just stuck. if you have a automatic transmission and you hit the brake pedal you should hear a click in the shifter to disengage park if you dont you need a new switch
Check & replace if necessary the brake pedal switch placed above pedals on the support. If the problem still occurs you might access the ESP & ABS ECU (Electronic Control Unit) using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) memored. Then you will be able to replace bad piece(s) and fix the problem by erasing all DTC stocked inside ESP & ABS ECU & reset it. I'm convinced that your brake pedal switch is faulty because the glow plug warning light went ON, flashing and you can not take your ignition key out. Just replace the brake pedal switch, see if rear stop lamps light when press the brake pedal, and test the car on the road. Two sensors are provided for engine starting authorization: The first one is placed on the automatic gearbox shift selector electronic module, which send a signal to the ignition switch barrel only if the shift knob is placed in park - "P" position, or in neutral - "N" position. Only now you can take out the ignition key from the ignition switch barrel. The second one is the brake pedal switch placed above brake pedal in the pedals bracket, which send a signal to the ignition switch barrel only if the brake pedal is depressed. Only now it is possible to cranking the engine by the electrical starter motor.
Look for a bad brake light switch above the brake pedal. If the brake light switch is not working, the shifter unlock solenoid, which gets power form the brake light switch, will not activate, and your shifter will not come out of park.
