Brake light switch operates lights only, so no, But you might be on the right track. There is a brake-shift solenoid that requires you to press the brake peddle to move the shifter out of Park. That might be defective. In the meantime, find the shift-lock override; explained in the owners manual, available on line, just google your car. That will get you going and as long as you shift into neutral and NOT into park, you'll have enough to get it fixed.
