I can't get my 2005 dodge 3500 to shift into drive like it should. I've been told it! concerns a switch somewhere between the brake pedal and shift lever but I don't know where that is or what to do. Help

I need more information about what your problem is. Are you talking about a problem with the shifter coming out of park? Are you talking about when you put the shifter in drive the vehicle won't go into drive in the trans? (just stays in neutral) Or what...

It won't go out of park even with my foot on the brake. I just let it idle for a lengthy time and eventually it will go into drive but not easily at all!!

so you mean that you can't get the shift lever out of park then right? Now that the trans won't go into drive...

you have a brake switch that sends a signal to a solenoid on the steering column that locks the shifter in park until it see that the brake is on. If is sees the brake on then it will turn the solenoid on and release the shift lever so you can move it. the solenoid works on the side of the steering column

Are your brake lights working (turning on) when you push on the brake pedal?
