Please don't double post (I removed the other one)

If anyone can help it may take hours or even a day or so until our more active members (worldwide) have seen it and had a think. I am not sure so will leave it to others...

It's under wty let them sort it.  The manual shift lock release is there as redundancy for  this exact situation where either the electrical side is missing or defective or you need to move the vehicle and have no key. Generally it's solenoid activated.

As to what the cause is, ignition needs to be and brake pedal so I'm thinking brake switch or solenoid but i don't know the design or circuit so it's a guess.

Let us know when they fix it for you
