Default 98 xj8 electrical issues (brake)

Drove car yesterday no problems until I parked at work, then could not get car out of park. No trouble codes, no brake lights when brake pedal is pushed including high mount brake light, cruise control functions but does not disengage when brakes are applied. No fuses blown.

Sounds like the Brake Pedal Switch has failed.

Is there a way to test for power at switch?

Access may be tight but use a meter (DVOM).

If you want, consult the workshop manual but this sounds simple.
