Stuck in Neutral

My 97 auto is stuck in a parking spot in neutral. The gear selector won't budge. I've tried turning the truck on and off, pressing the brake down very firmly, etc. any thoughts before I call a tow truck? Thanks all

Nevermind... Got it fixed. The little retainer under the trim piece popped off.

See picture - The red arrow shows the location of the brake switch sensor... it sits right up against the firewall on the back side of that flat piece black (dirty) metal.

I think this went bad, so it won't shift as it thinks you don't have your foot on the brake...

The little retaining clip under the trim piece had come loose and fell off. I have it working now, but not sure what the correct orientation of this clip is (microcat seems to be a diagram for an RRC, which is a little different). Anyone have a pic of this oriented correctly? Thanks again

I think your clip is on upside down. and turned the wrong direction.
