The shifter interlock is probably keeping out of gear an d from starting.
Try checkiong the brake light bulbs and fuses first.
Then if they work the brake lights need to be operable. If they work then you may need to look at taking the shifter partially appart aor inspecting the linkage to make sure there is not an obstruction.
