Brake light switch can break off causing brake lights to remain on. Check the switch it's just above the pedal it may have come lose but chances are it's broken off.

neautral safety switch. OK then check lock solenoid.

try turning the key to the acc position then moving the shifter to neutral. start the car now.'_Intrigue_to_move_or_unlock_when_it's_locked_in_park
