Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The truck start and then don't start sometimes. I
noticed that the light flicker on and off when I'm
trying to start it with the door open. It makes me
think that it could be electrical. The gear handle
seems to be a little off the "P". The battery,
alternator, and transmission have been checked ok.
Any suggestions?
