Hello and Welcome..

My name is MIKE - Im happy to help / advise you -

The problem you are describing is that of a faulty brake pedal switch -

This switch sends a signal to the shifter to release it - as you say to shift out of P etc..

When the switch is faulty, this will happen - you need to fit / have a new switch fitted to cure this issue for you -

Im very pleased to have helped you - Do let me know if you need anything more --
