i had the same problem there is a shift link cable that runs to the trans i think...the cable has a kink in it or somthing you need to go and buy a new cable for about $100 it will run alot smoother ..

You seem to have two (2) separate problems one may be a BAD brake light switch this switch is mounted at the top of BRAKE pedal and control the locking mechanism on gear shifter(safety component-for example if a kid is sitting in seat with vehicle running he/she will NOT be able to put vehicle in gear without stepping on brake). The other problem is a BAD shifter cable-this cable moves the selector in the transmission when you move shift knob. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

Most likely are. Check to see if your brake switch performs both functions. Does it do the cruise and the brake/park lock.

SOURCE: shifter is stuck in park
The shift cable is off the lever on the trans...the dash indicator states drive but the shifter is in park. Look under the drivers side of the trans, next to the catalytic converter(make sure the truck is cooled off) the trans cable will not be attached to the tranny lever-re-attach and you will be able to get it home or to a shop for a repair. This happened to me already, simple fix.

Sounds like your brake interlock is not working. You can manually override it. Check your owners manual, but there should be a small square around the trim around the shifter. Pry up the square and there is a release mechanism to manually release the solenoid. It should be covered in your owners manual how to override it.
I think to replace it you need to take apart the shifter trim.
