MDX transmission stuck in park

My 2002 MDX transmission has recently become stuck in PARK. I'm only able to shift out of PARK by using a screwdriver to override the safety mechanism. Any idea why the tranny won't let me shift out of PARK?

Could be the switch behind the brake pedal not triggering the shifter solenoid. Do you hear any clicking from the shifter when you hit the brake pedal?
