No it is the neutral switch,it is located near the shifter,



Removed Neutral switch. It still will not come out of the Park position. Shift arm remains unmovable. Any more suggestions. Help


Take shifter loose at tranny,try to shift by hand,if you cant, there is internal damage in the tranny.


Some time,s if you are lucky,you can have some one push on the truck while you try to move shifter.
