take a good small flashlight and start checking all the fuses
If it took out all of that, it should be easy to see which one is blown.
look for the one with the metal strip inside that has melted, may look burnt

Use this PDF for assistance. I would not do this again if I were you. Whenever you work on electrical shit, unhook the negative cable from the battery.

A fuse is, without any doubt, blown.

The fact that you have to pay a dealer $83 to replace two fuses that cost about $2.50 for a pack of 5 really frightens me, in the sense that I don't actually know if any advice I could give you would be helpful-

BUT, you need to turn your truck OFF, access your fuse panel in both the cab and under the hood and start inspecting. You have to use the fuse puller that should come attached to the plastic cover of the fuse panel and pull each individual fuse out, one by one, and inspect them. the small sliver of metal should be connected through the entire body of the fuse.

I will pray for you.

You will need to check them all including looking at the relay's to make sure none looked scorched.

The relays and more fuses are located in the relay box inside the engine compartment. That PDF I attached will show you the location. Check those fuses first. If all are good, you can pull the relays. A scorched relay will have black marks.

Here is a picture. Not the best, but should give you an idea.

IGN1 failure causes the shifter to lock up. I'd start there personally.

I had a similar problem. When i hooked up my trailer and took it out of park the fuse would blow. Turns out the back up lights on my trailer were grounded.
