Having a problem with the transmission locking in park, and I cannot remove key
on 2005 Ford Focus

How do I fix this problem? Also, the dash lights went out at the same time? Is there a linked fuse somewhere?

You need a shop to check this out, not being able to be certain that the transmission is all the way in park is a big problem. This could be an issue with the shift console, the shifter cable, or even the transmission linkage. The cable is the most likely, but you don't want to guess.
