    Yes, I know the button next to the shifter you must press to manually override this. I have done so and can then shift to D or R and drive the truck.

    I thought it would correct itself, but I still have to push the button when I try to take out of park.

    This all happened after, instead of starting the truck to scoot it back a few inches to fit in garage, I just put it in Neutral and pushed with my foot.

    My brake lights are working..

    Any clue guys? Thanks for any advice!

    Do you have a camper shell? If the wiring to your 3rd brake light is damaged it can pop that switch too.

    Have you disconnected the battery? Try disconnecting the battery and let it sit a few minutes, reconnect it and see if that fixes it.

    Battery disconnect wasn't the fix. Any other ideas? Read a little about the brake switch sensor may be out... not acknowledging brake is depressed.

    On my wife's sentra it was a relay connected to the brake pedal. It's the one that tells the car that you have your foot on the brake so it's ok to shift. Her brake lights still worked.
