Default shifter stuck in park

I have a 98 silverado 1500 and the shifter in stuck in park. I've heard there is a solenoid you can disable in the steering column. Anyone know how to do this....

Default Fix for won't go out of park

A couple of days ago I replaced my brake light switch. WHAT A PAIN! Everything was fine until my son called me from football practice and said the truck would not shift out of park. I figured it had to be something with the switch so I crawled back underneath and sure enough, the switch had slipped out to the end of the bar that runs through the center of the switch. When I bought the switch, I looked for a new clip kit but everyone was out or didn't carry them so I put the old one back on and it came off. I pushed the switch back in place as far as I could to the drivers side and got it home. I used a small tie wrap, looped it over the bar and pulled it as tight as I could. I don't know how long this will last but it should get me through until I can find a clip kit. So, bottom line, your switch my not be bad; it just may be that it slid out of place and the link rod on the side of the switch isn't lining up so the shifter won't budge.
