      sometimes get under dash and rock switch by hand and it will start working again but its only temporary there should be a shift overide looks like a key slot on shifter or try to shift into neutral and start it there do this by turning the key one notch and move shifter then start it hope this helps

      What you can do to get it in gear is to put the key to the on position, shift it into neutral start it then put it in gear. And like others have said its the brake light switch mounted below the steering wheel by the brake pedal.. Follow the pedal up and you should see the switch.
