Default Can't shift out of park

I have a 93 geo prism that was running great before this problem. The shifter is locked into park and the car won't start. At first I thought it might be a battery issue, but the headlights and horn work fine. There are other things that don't work with the ignition on. I get no power to the radio, heater fan, brake lights and turn signals. When I try to start it, I get absolutely nothing--not even a click. I appreciate your help. Thanks

Have you checked the fuses?

Your car may have a power relay that handles the load of all things on with the ignition, I'll check a wiring diagram.

I don't have a complete wiring schematic for your car, but this may be enough.

Their 2 fusable links in the top left corner of this image, if they blow then you will loose power to much of the car.

Thank you thank you thank you. I was almost ready to call a tow truck. The problem was one of those fusible links that you suggested. I appreciate your quick response. This problem has been bugging me the last few days. Thanks again, Dick
