Rock it back and forth with pressure in either direction on gear selector. Manual or auto can have a safety switch after 1991. If sensor fails to detect park or neutral, no start.

#26 fuse keeps blowing

You had vehicle with no problems until you
paid a butcher to install the radio,so you know
how the problems got there

Now you go back to the radio folks or get it out of the
system & return the vehicle to as built working condition

When i am driving my 2005 ford ranger the radio cuts out and and there is no sound, there wont be any sound from the CD player but the counsel shows that there still is power to it. When i put the truck in...

I have had the same problem with my 2007.
Going to the dealer, they did not found the cause and charge me for 2 hrs invstigation. ($200).

Finnaly I found the source of the problem by myself.

Water entering in the right door and falling on the speaker. + drain holes blocked at the bottom of the door by antirust compound.

Cleaning the drain holes, almost 1.5 liter of water flowing from the inside of the door. 2 days after, door interior drying, the radio start to work normally.
