it's on the trans. where the shift cable connects to it. Transmission position sensor/switch . It signals the TCM to signal the BCM to turn the lights on. Not simple anymore.

As repairman54 posts, the Trans Internal Mode Switch sits next to the TCM.
If the transmission was forced into the wrong gear, you might check the shift cable to see that it is not out of adjustment.
