I can't even press my little button in unless my pedal is on the floor. Sometimes I can't even press it in then.

sounds like your brake switch is sticking... i would check the actuator on the shift lock and see if it is not working properly..

i might know where to get a new actuator for dirt cheap if this is teh problem

in the center console, the cable that tells your shifter when you apply the brake

what would be the CORRECT way to fix this?
