I have a 2000 Leganza and it would not shift out of park/gear recently. I discovered it was a bad brake switch with signals the brake lights to activate and the shifter to release. The switch is a small plug-type part and I found a used one on line for about 30 bucks. labor to put it in was about 50. !

I had same problem years ago - there was a recall on the brake light switch - you may be able to get it replaced for free?

In case you get stuck though and need to get it home - stick a screw driver into the slot next to your shifter to get it into gear. Get the switch fixed though - your brake lights may not be coming on.

3 very quick and obvious things that will tell you the TPS is operating correctly. 1) If no signal is being received, the transmission will stay in 3rd gear and will not shift. 2) If high voltage exist, the transmission will shift very late if at all but will take of in 1st gear. 3) The check engine light will be on.
