Default Problem Shifting Out of Park

I have a 2002 Ranger Edge. When I first start the vehicle, it does not want to shift out of park. If I let the vehicle run and pump the brake, vehicle will then shift. Brakes seem to work great. What is the problem and how do I fix it. Help please.

I have never had that problem but there is a solinoid located on the steering column that controls the shift lock. If you remove the trims and steel plate under the column you should be able to see it. I would check the wiring plug and make sure its plugged in all the way and also check the brake lights. I would assume its controlled by the brake light switch.
