Sounds like wiring. The key won't release unless the car is in park. From what I can remember the solenoid that controls the shifter lock is on the same circuit as the horn. Since the fuse was spent I think somthing must be shorting out. Take the centre console out and check for burn and or touching wires by the shifter.

there is a short in the horn wiring, you may disconnect the horn relay, that the easiet thing to do. owners manual should have a layout of where the relay is. Steering wheel switches most likely.

That's the horn fuse,you have located it;
I will assume that you have checked for a blown fuse, and that the fuse is good!! If not, check that first!With a test light and a jumper wire, you can locate the problem with little effort!
You can get a test light from any auto supply store, or from Wal-mart! They are only a few dollars and are a very helpful thing to have.
A jumper wire is just a piece of wire, that you can use to run power from one location to another! If you want to be fancy, you can put alligator clips on both ends!
-Start by locating the horns and pulling the wire off of one. Attach your test light to a ground and use the probe (pointed end) to connect to the horn wire.
-Have someone hit the horn button on the steering wheel! If the test light lights, then the horn(s) are bad and will need to be replaced! Just to be sure, take your jump wire and run from the positive battery post to the horn power connector (where you pulled off the wire) and make sure that the horn does not sound with direct power!
-If there is no power to the horn, you will need to check the horn relay to see if it is getting power. If it is the relay is bad! If there is no power to the relay, the problem is in the steering column or steering wheel horn button!
-Most likely the horn or the horn relay is bad!
