What year? You do have you foot on brake. Right? that could be the problem, NOT YOU, no offense, but the lock that prevents shifting from Park on brake petal. I need to look around and see what switch does that. Why I need year/ Some are same as brake light.

Well crap, I am really in a rush, but I think you might be also, at the moment I can't research a quick fix, but try this if your mechanical at all,......The switch I'm talking the safety neutral which while cause you to not be able to shift out of park and should be on the drivers side of the tranny where the shift linkage attaches to it. So, first look under there and see if you see any thing unusual, like binding or a stupid stick or something dumb, try and wiggle the lingage around and also look around your brake maybe up towards the dash follow the brake pedal up the metal and look for anything that looks like a push in switch, The following tranny safety neutral, have you had any work done under the truck?? If so you might need to do the following and here is what you will need to readjust this, I really have to go and will be back later...need a 13mm socket and a 15 mm socket . You will also need a heat gun , the electrical plug is glued into the connectors and must be warmed up to be removed . these rarly go bad but they do get out of adjustment / or when removing pan techs are sometimes to bend the shift cable bracket and get them out of adjustment . Loosen the two 13mm bolts and move it slightly in both directions and see if this fixs you problem before you change it out. the safety neutral that is.. bye Hell dave get to work..G
