It's not a fuse , the SJB - smart junction box controls these lights ! This is fords body control module . If the Heater / A/C control panel ,hazard switch ,headlamp switch , message center switch all work, it is not a fuse . The gear shifter I would say the bulb is burnt out . The steering wheel lights could be out because of an open in the clock spring . The clock spring is a device inside the steering column under the steering wheel that keeps your horn , cruise control , radio buttons etc... connected electrically . How cars clock spring works
Remove the PRNDL trim ring.
Remove the upper console panel.
Slide the lower shift knob bezel downward.
Remove the bolt and lift up on the shift knob to remove.
Remove the lower shift knob bezel.
Disconnect the light bulb from the PRNDL bezel. an replace .
Don't think you need take shifter knob off . Just PRNDL trim plate an upper console plate . They should just pull up , use plastic trim tool to get it so you can get your fingers under an pull up carefully .
Generally if the cruise control light is on, on the dash indicator then the problem is in the steering wheel electrical connection.
Then internal wiring connecting the steering wheel cruise control switch is connected to the dash by a special wire called a clock-spring ribbon. This is located under/behind the steering wheel. It is not a self service repair item and required a good deal of expertise to repair. Sorry, but you will most likely need to take it to a qualified mechanic. Because the steering wheel also contains an airbag, do not attempt to do this repair yourself!!!
Did you reinstall the gear shift knob? Without the knob attached you should still be able to push down on shifter button with your foot on the brake to shift.
If you cannot push in button, listen carefully for a click (underneath the gear shift) when you put your foot on the brake. If you do not hear a click, your shift solenoid could be bad or your brake solenoid could be bad (which supplies power to your shift solenoid). Your brake solenoid will also control your brake lights so simply put your foot on the brake and have someone see if they light up. If they do light up your brake solenoid is good and you'll have to troubleshoot your shift solenoid.
I believe your transmision gone bad and needs replacment or rebuild, Unless this a 4wd modelSsorento, if so, you have your 4wd turn on and on the low 4wd side in Lx models if this is a 4wd sorento ex, equipped with the auto/low 4wd knob. You might have the knob, or accidently shift the knob to the (low 4x4) position, and if you do, then the car is set only to run on the first gear for max tranction and to prevent your differential from overheating. This knob is located on your left side of the steering wheel, and if turned to the 4wd postion, it needs to be in the auto or 2wd poistion.

Steering wheel lights do not have bulbs you can change. The switch is a sealed asembly with an integral light. Each one costs around $110 at the dealership.
Heated seats have wires inside a fabric cover located betwwen the outside seat skin and the inner foam. Over time, they burn out. You can buy replacements from the dealer and have either them or an upholstery shop install them.
