Most likely it is the shifter interlock witch locks the shifter so children or even a n adult dose not mistakenly knock the shifter out of park. some cars that the interlock dose not release when in park or when key is in the run position will shift in the acc. mode where you can listen to the raido but not use things like power windows or wipers. I would try that then put it in neutral and try starting the car with the parking brake on. if it comes out of par then it is the interlock and you can use the steps I mentioned before to start the car till you get it to a mechanic. good luck hope this helped.
