Default Fix gone wrong?

I had an intermittent problem with the shifter not coming out of PARK when the brake was engaged. The local Suzuki dealership after about 2 days returned the car charging me for replacing the foot switch and the solenoid (in the shifter) and the problem still occurred. They then claimed (for an additional charge) they found a 'broken' wire and fixed that. The problem is 3 strange things began to happen:- 1. Now every time I engage the brake, the solenoid 'fires' (I can hear it) even when I brake on the road, highway and regardless of the gear I am in. I thought it should fire only when the vehicle was in park, the brake is pressed and the ignition is on. Is this right? 2. I began to get P0705 service codes and they claim it was from my Shift Module (which again I paid to replace) but the code still comes back everytime they reset it - they also claim they have been trying to 'adjust' this module. I think the problem is elsewhere (in the harness to this module perhaps (which sits on the transmission case under the car) 3. If I keep the brake on and switch off removing the key, the engine continues to run until I remove my foot from the brake. Any idea what they could have done (sounds like if they simply by-passed and made a connection directly from the brake to the solenoid to fix the original problem but ended with a series of others. Any ideas?

you are correct in saying that the solenoid should only 'fire' in park.. They did something wrong..
