Problem starting the car in neutral position while pressing brake

I have a Renault Megane II 2006 and this morning while starting the car and pressing the brake it wouldnt start and gives me the message select neutral even if the gear is already in the neutral position. I had to press the clutchto start it. Tonite while i was reversing i noticed that neither the reverse lights nor the rear parking sensors are working. Anyne can help please..i will really appreciate. Is it a common problem?

It sounds like the reverse light switch on the gearbox has failed. They are about 20 plus half an hour labour to fix, if you cant do it yourself. they simply unbolt.
