FORD EXPLORER TRAILER PROBLEM

2005 Ford Explorer • 16,000 miles

Here is my issue. Oh, it is a Sport Trac btw. I can't get the shifter out of park after having started the engine. I checked fuses, replace the brake light switch, and shift interlock solenoid. No luck. I can get the shifter out of park by rotating the ignition switch to just the right spot. I can then shift to neutral to start the truck, then be on my way. I am not hearing a click when pressing the brake pedal as I always have. I have a brake box installed for the electric brakes on the trailer that I pull. I did notice when pressing the brake pedal with the trailer hooked up, that power didn't seem to be going to the trailer brakes. Any help greatly appreciated.
