You have a fault with the Park and Neutral position switch. Check the fuses to see if any is broken.

You're welcome but you threw us off track.

If the brake fuse is bad how did you manage to get the brake lights to work? Any wrong information that is incorrect would take us on a wild goose chase for nothing.

After installing the fuse, ensure it does not blow again. If it does, something is causing the shorting and needs to be diagnosed.

Have a nice day.

Are the horn and radio working now?
If not, recheck the fuses again. They could be blown again.
