Brakes problem
1998 Oldsmobile Achieva 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

my 98 olds achieva brake light came on so I took it too the repair shop they said it may just be a short on the system. Now when I want to get my car out of park it wont to it even if I have my foot on the brake, I end up having to do it manually. I also just noticed that my car isnt accelerating as well since the brake light has come on. What could be wrong?

Do you

This may sound like a stupid question, but are the brake lights working? If the switch is bad, it won't send a signal to the park release solenoid to release the shifter.
