There are two in the circuit. fuse 2.42 15A in the central junction box goes to the solenoid on the shifter but has to go through the brake lamp switch first. The other is fuse 1.8 30A in the battery junction box. you most likely have a bad stop lamp switch or the solenoid on the shifter itsself

According to a transmission shop it is a small PLASTIC rod going from gearshift button to mechanism in the shift handle. Any mechanics shop should be able to fix it. IN THE MEAN Time.... there is a small circular plastic cap to the lower right side of the shifter. Remove cap and push a THIN screw driver in and depress the button inside. It will allow you to shift out of park. YOU will have to do this everytime unitl you have it repaired but its a start.
