Before going on vacation for a week my F150 ran fine. A week later I came back and my truck started with no problem but when I engaged the brake and tried to switch from park to reverse the handle will not budge. I have no idea what it can be, can someone help me out with this?

First thing to check is the brake switch.

If the brake lights dont work it definetely needs replacement.

If they do the switch still could be bad as it has two circuits in it, and if one goes out the lights could still work but doesnt meen the release solenoid would work.

To drive it for now you can try turning the key to right before the onposition, shift to neutral then start it.
