I just worked on mine. Not a bad job at all. To drive the truck all you need to do is pop the top of the console and you can manualy depress the soleniod in order to get shifter out of park. To repair, I just removed the soleniod and was able to repair it. The transistor on the board is more than likely the culprit. This can fail open (which will give the symptom you have) or fail shorted which will allow you to put truck in gear without depressing the brake peddal (and will cause the cruise control to fail). I replaced the transistor and that fixed mine. A couple of bucks. If you decide to tackle it on your own, I can talk you through it.
