If the car is automatic you must have the footbrake applied to shift from park.

it is located on the back of the fuse panel, you have to actually unscrew and remove the entire panel. It is a 20 amp fuse. The problem usually comes from a bad power lock actuator.

Not really enough info given to diagnose your problem. BUT, here's a possibility: IF it is an automatic transmission AND it won't shift out of second gear - second gear is a safety default called the "limp-home" mode. If the transmission is failing it will automatically lock into that gear so that you will at least be be able to get it to home or a repair facility. Transmissions are usually NOT a do-it-yourslef item, and it will probably have to be diagnosed by a mechanic.
