Default removing the neutral safety switch. Anyone?

I'm having a problem after i got my car back from a body shop. They replaced the driver side fender and doors for me. Now i can't get out of Park unless i press down the switch. Also the gears indicator light on the gauge cluster is not working.

- I have checked all of my brake lights and they are all in working order.
- I checked the STOP fuse and it's good. Checked the rest of the fuses and everything is good.
- I also exchanged a brake switch with another car. Didn't solve the problem.

The only thing left i can think of right now is the neutral safety switch. But I can't take it out completely. It's stuck because there's not enough room to take it out.

Have anyone done removing the neutral safety switch on the transmission for the GS yet? I managed to removed the two bolts but now i can't completely take it out because it's hitting against my car frame. Give me some tips if you have done it

Is there a way to test the part to know that it's the problem?

This is a picture i found of the part that's hitting against the frame

I read on the forums and the neutral switch seem to be the problem causing all of that.

have you checked the fuse panel by your left foot. I had this problem and it was a fuse that is related to the brake lights.

I checked all of the small fuses on the bottom left panel. Can you give me some more details on which fuses?

I have checked the STOP fuse and the passenger side under the hood side. Are there fuses on the right side? I thought they're just relays

I'm seriously running out of idea. I got the car back from the body shop because they were installing a new fender and door for me. I'm assuming they short or blew a fuses while doing that. Are there anything under the driver side fender that can cause this problem?

Are you visually inspecting the fuses or using a multimeter? After having some work done on my car recently, a bunch of random fuses were blown. 9/10 of em were visibly blown, but one fuse was a sneaky lil Sh$5*...

I checked with this fuse tester and a multimeter. I know it gotta be a fuse or a short somewhere. Everything was running good until the body shop touched my car.

I'm going to attempt to check the passenger side kick panel today and see.
