Hi:
I hate to say it but it sounds like you have a problem in the steering column or with the switch again. Based on your description, placing it back into park is causing something to short. Remove the switch and have it checked. If it's good, I hate to say it, but I think you may need to have an auto electric mechanic take apart the steering column.

Let me know what you find.

Joe
