Transmission lever remains locked in P

Hi
I recently purchased a 2006 View with a Dodge Sprinter cab and a Mercedes diesel. I have experienced a couple problems. Maybe related, maybe not. The P remains locked with the key in place and the hand break engaged unless I free it manually with a Pencil, and the Acceleration skid control light remains on in the dash. Neither problem seem to interfere with normal operation of the vehicle. Any suggestions to avoid the problems without taking the vehicle to a mechanic?

Thanks in advance for any ideas Marty.

Do you have brake lights? Check your brake light switch under the brake pedal...

P staying locked and acceleration skid light staying on

I checked the brake lights and they come on when I engage the brakes. The turn signals also work. The manual says if the electrical system is not producing 10 volts the light will come on. Is there a way to check that out?

Thanks Marty

Is it possible the electric system is losing 10 volts or more if the solenoid for the P position is not working? I am assuming the P solenoid is located near the shift lever.
