Try removing fuses one at a time until no smoke. Leave fuse OUT until U can get a wiring diagram and see.
LT signal not working--any lites coming on? Which one(s)? Stay on or out? Go to the one that is Out, remove socket, could be loose pins in socket causing a short. Or, wire pinched.Sometimes, bulbs short out, internally. Did U have a fender bender, lately?
Shift lockout sounds like a separate issue. U may have to remove shifter (Battery disconnected-!!) and look at wires. Most likely a switch came loose. Adjust as in a Haynes book, put Locktite on screws then retighten. Chevy ignition switches often get loose, too, only way to fix 'em is like this.

Shorts sometimes happen after even minor accidents. Bent metal can damage insulation.

It's at one end of the burning wire.
