From my experience with Lexus cars, when the switch at the brake pedal fails, it is also difficult or impossible to shift the transmission out of Park without pressing the override button near the shift lever. Is this the case with your car? When the brake pedal switch has failed on my cars, the failure has been intermittent. Sometimes the brake lights work and I can shift out of Park and sometimes not.
