Can't put car in gear

I can't put my car in gear unless I mess around with some wires directly under the steering wheel. I have never seen the wires because my son goes up under there but my brake lights won't work if I can't put it in gear. Can someone help?

There is a switch on the brake pedal that operates a solenoid inside of the shifter that releases the lock to allow you to take the car out of "Park". It sounds like the problem is that switch. It's probably also the problem that you are having with the brake lights...

Thanks. I'll have someone look at it.

Brake light switch...controls ability to engage gears, deactivates cruise control, and of course the brake lights.
