when you locate this, pry it off and there is a tab inside you just push down to release the shift lock so you can shift out of park. Most likely either the brake light fuse or switch on the brake peddle.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
