    does the shifter only lock when the fuses get messed up?

    I think it unlocks in accessory mode, if you can't go in acc it won't unlock. eg : no keys, dead battery, blown fuses, etc.
    It's either acc mode or when the engine starts, I don't quite remember.

    ^^It's under the plastic tab at the top of the shifter display. Just read your sig, it's only for autos so you don't have one.
