The brake pads have sensors in them, when the pads get worn down to the sensor the light comes on letting you know its time to replace. this happens well before the pads are completely gone to reduce wear on the rotors. You should have the brakes replaced and the sensor also.

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear
Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

The problem that I could see is the transmission/shift solenoid. The solenoid thing is located inside the transmission. The repair
should run $200-$250 or there abouts. If you don't fix it quickly
though, you will wreck the transmission and you don't want to know how
much that costs!
You may also contact the manufacturer for second opinion.
Hope this helps and have a great evening!

This is a problem internal to the transmission then.Possibly just a solenoid issue, but you may be in need of a full rebuild or transmission replacement.Also try this Disconnect the shifter cable located at the bottom of steering column under the dash and see if the shifter will move. If it will not move than you will need to remove the shifter column tube and find out what is sticking. if it does than you need to disconnect the cable at the trans and see if the shifter will shift. If it does than you have internal problem in trans if it wont you have a cable issue.
you can remove the gearshift handle and boot, and try to figure out what is jammed or misaligned.
