1994 ford escort lx wagon

Is there a fuse or relay that controls the rpm guage,coolant blower motor and the saftey so I can get my car out of park!?I was traveling down the highway at 70mph and notice a change in pitch in the transmission,after I got off the highway I notice the rpm guage,turn signals and coolant motor wasnt working,and the saftey switch for getting the car out of park!The guy who towed the car said there was a blown fuse for that saftey,thats how he got it out of park,is it possible there is a blown fuse or relay causing all of these problems and where would I start?Thanks-Lee
