Default Gear shift hung up in park

Having problem with a 1989 F-350 dually I recently bought. Ever since I bought it I have been able to move gear shift (automatic) lever without pressing brake pedal. Now it is hung up in Park and won't come out no matter how hard you press brake pedal. Also, which might be related, key switch will not crank truck. Got any idea?

I don't know anything about the automatic lock out, but I do know the inside of that column quite well. It is an intricate combination of a push rod and some stuff.
My best advice would be to take off the covers and pull the ignition cylinder out (turn to the run position and use a small drift to push the pin underneath the cylinder and it pulls right out) and take a look at the stuff.
These are known for the rod snapping inside there and then you can't start the truck. If need be you can leave the covers off and start the truck by pushing the lower rod by hand.
I'd suggest just pulling those covers and see what it looks like in there, could just be gummed up. You may have to pull the wheel and turn signal switch, have to unscrew the rod and gently pull the white switch out.
That is if this is a tilt column...

before you start taking things apart, do a couple of checks
start by checking the brake light fuse, and all the other fuses in the cab & under the hood
could also be the brake light switch, this can be cheched with a mulit-meter

do you have the wheels turned to far to one side
try turning the key while you jiggle the steering wheel
