    I checked around and found that the common problem was a blown brake light fuse.I have brake lights,also that means the switch is good,unless there is two separate parts to this switch.I knew that someone must have had this problem before.I took the little cap off to allow it to come out of park,and that works fine,except I want it to work properly,thanks for the view and help in advance

    I had that happen twice over the years in my wife's '98. I actually just pressed on the brake and firmly pushed the shifter forward and it freed it up.
    Hope it's that simple for you, or you get it figured out. It has not happened to us again....good luck!

    I really appreciate your help.I’ll try that,most things are lube,this is probably a solenoid that is activated and sucks back out of a hole every time you hit the brake which is how it locks it After I try I will post my solution.I have six of these all 97 or 98,only three that I drive,one 4x2 stick,4x2 automatic,and this one 4x4 automatic,I love them,thanks again
