I assume you have an automatic transmission?
There are six wires on the shifter connector (in your center console). Two of them are thick. Probably green and purple but can be of different colors too. You can just pull/cut them out of the connector and join them (solder or butt connector).
However, I would rather replace the shifter switch. I wouldn't want to accidentally start the car in drive or reverse. But that's just my opinion.
