My car has an automatic transmission.
Hello - the short answer is "No". Besides determining which switch (brake or shifter interlock) is malfunctioning, there is no way to by-pass these devices. This is for safety reasons of course, but is frustrating in some circumstances as you describe. I recommend a transmission shifter malfunction inspection performed by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, diagnose this problem, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
