General failure where is the brak switch

My mechanic was searching for an electric fault regarding the air compressor that did not receive power and made a major mess!

All of a sudden the car didn't want to move out of P and many brake failure lights show up. The brake lights suddenly also don't work. The car starts now without pressing the brake! We released the pin in the gearbox lever and moved it to N but the car also suddenly gives big shocks moving into D

Can anyone help. I think my mechanic made a big f*ck up and I brought it to someone I trust more in an attempt to fix it. I read on the forum that the brake pedal sensor seems to cause a lot of trouble (although its weird that the suddenly happened messing with the electric wiring) I tried to find the brake sensor - and looked everywhere but cannot find it! My car is a V8 2009. Can anyone please shed some light and help me start finding the path to get my car back again..? THANK YOU
