Hello and welcome to the forums
when you have to press the brake to start the car have you noticed if the reverse lights work or not ?
Im sure its a switch on the gearbox that detects whether or not the car is in neutral. Its not a big thing to sort and something you could do yourself If your willing to get under the car.
