Question about Mercury Sable
I think the problem is what is called the brake switch, not a fuse. It is a little switch with a plunger on it that lets the car know when you have pushed the brake pedal. The car has a safety system that will not let it start until it knows you are on the brake pedal, so without this input it will not start. The exception is if it is in neutral, which you obviously have witnessed. It is connected either to the pedal way up under the dash or on a bracket behind the pedal, also up away from the actual part you put your foot on. On many of the fords it is blue with black plastic (though don't count on this to identify it). Not sure of price, call a dealer, but it shouldn't be much if that is the problem.
