OR

Shifter cable adjustment.

It sounds like that stupid switch that sits on the brake pedal may be going bad.

Yes, probably the brake light switch. The plunger on the switch may have deteriorated/broken off.

See this link for this guy's cheap fix:

You can always replace it too.

On the shift lever console you may find a little lid: if you remove it you can use a pin to manually override the blocking of the shift lever in P. This override procedure is also described in the owner's manual.
