    It's not the brake fuse, but rather the brake interlock switch that is located along the brake pedal arm under the driver's side dash. When this switch goes bad, the gearshifter remains locked in Park position even though you are pressing down on the brake. It could also be the shift lock solenoid underneath the shift lever assembly, but 90% of the time it is the brake switch that goes bad.
