Trans help...please!

Hi all, I've got a 98 323is (105K) with an auto trans. When my wife came home from work yesterday and parked in the garage, she said she had a hard time getting it into park. She went to leave for work this morning, the car will not come out of park. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

OK, let me also throw this in....With the ignition "ON" and the car "Not" running, it will shift out of gear. If you start the car, it will not come out of Park. I'm thinking it is the brake sensor???

It ended up being the Brake light switch. Stupid dealer wanted $41+tax, got them to give my 15% off....Works fine now...
