actually there is a senser connected to the break pedal and I have to keep depressing mine some times 20 or more depressions to get it to work TRY PUTTING YOUR FOOT ON THE BRAKE FIRST BEFORE SHIFTING My 99' Catera does the same thing! It is nothing to do with the brake. I found it does it mostling in the mornings and when it hasn't been drove that day. Also, if you move the shifter from side to side, while pressing on the lever over and over again.
