Stuck in Park/No Brake Lights

2006 Maxima, 118K Miles. Car is stuck in park, starts normally. Can change gears using the manual interlock. Now the brake lights don't work.!
Replaced stop light fuse, Battery Saver, and the two "electronic parts" fuses. Note that the "Battery Save Fuse" was bad. The rest of the car works fine. (except climate control - no fans, temp control, A/C)

Continuity tester touching the connectors on both sides of the brake pedal switch (Unplug it for access) and push on the Brake pedal. No sound or light means bad brake pedal switch as suggested above. Also make sure a plug didn't back out so it can't conduct.
