Question about 1999 GMC Sierra
Make sure the brake light are coming on when pedal is stepped on, as the shifter uses the brake light switch to send power to shifter release soleniod, most times its the brake light switch, you will need to check for power at the shift release soleniod.

It might be the lock sensor. To get you where you need to go there is a bypass sometimes you have to take a small little cover off to get to it and use a the key or a small screw driver

check the brake lights to see if they work ithey do then the problem is in the locking mechanism, however if the brake lights sont work then first check the fuse, check the wires and the connector that hooks up to the brake switch under the pedal and if it is dammaged repair as needed and if yo get the lights working yo have made the lock to work also!!

there could be a problem with the linkage itself, when it does not come out of park there is a reason, when you force it, that is when you create bad problems for yourself. it could be something as simple as the brake lamp switch located directly on the brake pedal arm.

NOTE: Your vehicle is equipped with a
brake-shift interlock feature. This
feature prevents you from shifting
from P (Park) unless you have the
brake pedal depressed. (The ignition
must be in the ON position.) If you
cannot shift from P (Park) with the
brake pedal depressed:
1. Apply the parking brake.
2. Remove the key.
3. Insert the key and rotate one position
clockwise (ignition in the OFF position).
4. Apply the brake pedal and shift to N
(Neutral). (If the vehicle is shifted to P
(Park), you must repeat the previous steps.)
5. Start the vehicle.
If you need to shift out of P (Park) by using the
alternate procedure described above, it is
possible that a fuse has blown and that your
brakelamps may also not be functional.
DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE UNTIL
YOU VERIFY THAT THE BRAKELAMPS
check fuse 13 based on the attached diagram.
If this fuse is bad replace it. If it is not bad, blows again, or continues to be stuck in park then you need a new brake interlock switch that can be found on the brake pedal up underneath the dash.
