2012 Versa Stuck In Park

Hello everyone. I have a 2012 Nissan Versa with about 119k on her. Her name is Vera, Vera the Versa. So here is my problem. My Versa is stuck in park and at this point the only way to get it out of park and into gear is by utilizing the shift lock release. Has anyone had this problem and if so how did you fix it? I like to do things myself and I pray this is one of those issues I can fix without spending too much money. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Do you hear a click when you press the brake pedal?

If not, the brake switch could be bad/failed.

Would it be a metallic click, plastic like click? Are those difficult to replace?

Is the brake switch also called the brake light switch?

Thank you. I removed the switch and performed a continuity check on it and I donít if itís good or bad. I have two sets of connectors/prongs on the switch and both test the same way. As I test it with my multimeter both sets have continuity and beep, when I push the button in the beep stops. Does anyone know if I did this right?

How old is the battery?, that can do it too.

I for one defeat that switch to never be an issue again, it's a child protection thing and mine are long gone.

You yank the console and determine how the interlock works to stop the shifter from moving then remove something to render it ineffective. On mine I remove the electric solenoid that works the lockout arm. I have removed the arm itself before as well. You have to know what parts you are looking at of course.
