Answers :

On the 2004 New Body style truck, the shift interlock switch is part of the BPP ( Brake Pedal Position ) switch.

Take a a look at the wiring on the switch to make sure it is not crimped / damaged some how. The wiring path is fairly short with the column shifter.

The shift interlock wiring path

Fuse #16 to BPP Switch is Tan w/ Red stripe wire
BPP to shift interlock solenoid is Pink with Light green stripe wire.

Pull the connector on the BPP, replace Fuse #16 ( if needed ) and jumper the back of the connector with a paper clip ( be careful not to make contact with ground, it will blow the fuse ) through the back of the connector.
If the fuse blows, the Shift Interlock Solenoid is the issue, if not the BPP or where the wires were located when the connector was plugged in is the issue ( that is part of checking the wire to / from the BPP for damaged insulation ).
