Will not shift from PARK

2013 sl550 with electronic shift lever.
Car will start but will not shift from PARK intermittently. Brake light sometimes does not go on --repeated pressing will eventually work and then it will shift. Obviously points to faulty brake light switch but I'm wondering why it starts consistently. Doesn't brake light switch interlock apply to starting as well since brake has to be depressed for starting. Battery may be low as car sits a lot. Any idea of cost of switch and labor to install. Am considering replacing both batteries as they are 5 1/2 years old. Thanks for sharing any experiences or knowledge.
