Not familiar with this car but the service manual may give you some help. Most libraries have subscriptions to online automotive service manuals for almost any year, make and model of car, motorcycle, or whatever. If you have a library card, some will give you the u/n and p/w so you can access them from your home computer, if not then you will have to go to your local branch to get access, but it is free!
First, what is exactly happening? as there is no fuse for Gear shifter.
Is the car not going out of park? If so, then check the Brake switch. Brake has to be depressed which operates the brake switch sending signal to the gear shifter to unlock so it can be shifted. If Brake switch is okay then only a mechanical obstruction is preventing the shifter operation. For this you will have to take of the cover on the gear shifter to see what is fouling.
There is a shift lock release lever located just to the left of the gear shift. Pop off the plastic cover, and then use a flathead screwdriver or similar instrument to push down and release the lever. While you are holding that down, you will be able to override the lock and shift out of park. Then release the lever.
check the fuse for your brake lights, check your brake light switch. If the brake lights don't go on your car will not shift out of park. The shifter should have an override button. look for an access hole (cover) near the shifter, pop the cover off and push a pencil down there to shift. check your owners manual for specific information on the use of the override button
There is a shift lock release lever you can use to override the lock. It is located to the left of the gear shift, and it's covered by a small plastic cover that you can pop off. Use a flathead screwdriver (or something similar) to push the lever in, and then you can shift out of park.
