Lately it's doing this again, and that trick isn't working. What does work is to get out of the car and push it backward as far as I can get it and yank up the hand brake. When I get back in I can crank up and shift out of park, then release the hand brake. What on earth is going on here, and how can I fix it? BTW, it stays locked in park even if I put the key in the shift lock release slot.

That is correct about the solenoid (at least according to the Haynes manual). The brake lights are working fine, so I assumed that the brake sensor switch wasn't the problem. Considering how the shift lock release doesn't work and I have to roll the car back (taking tension off of the transmission?), it seems like a mechanical rather than electric problem, as if there's something physically preventing the solenoid from disengaging.
IIRC, there's a solenoid by the shifter that locks it in park unless the key is in, and your foot is on the brake. Check your brake switch, it might be defective/worn out.
