Default What are the chances!?

So a few months back I was using my spotlight powered by the center console outlet. The light and the power to the plug-in gave out.
I checked the fuses myself and all were good. So a few weeks ago I brought it to the dealer. They said," fuses were good but we are going to have to trace wires to find the problem" so I booked an appointment.
Appointment was Tuesday past and yesterday they called and said that they fixed the plug. Apparently the fuse was missing..??
Anyways he also said I have a new problem. The truck is in the garage and won't come out of park.
They ordered some kind of shift bracket for the truck and that didn't fix it so he said he's going to have to check the wires and it may be also be an ecu probelm.
I didn't think the ecu had anything to do with a transmission. But anyways that's a pretty random problem that I'm having a hard time believing.
Any comments or similar coincidences?

My comment is to never, ever take it back to that dealership.

IMO the mechanic took out and moved fuses where he wasn't suppose to but ya know how could I figure it out I'm not an automotive mechanic.

Dealership is still looking at it. I'd say it's something like that. They hauled the dash apart because the outlet wasn't working to trace wire and the mechanic might have hit something I guess.
Thanks

I told them about what you said and he's going to check it out.
Also now there is only one headlight and one taillight working.
Something is going wrong somewhere.

Anybody else with any feedback on this?

Uh, yeah, but nothin useful. Working at a dealership does not a mechanic make. You really need to have a conversation with the service manager.
