2004 F150 problems starting

Asked by Nov 24, 2015 at 03:25 PM about the 2004 Ford F-150 FX4 Ext. Cab SB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I’m having issues with my F150 starting. When key is turned everything comes on but starter never engages.  Battery and starter are good.  If you move the gear shift out of park into different gear and back to park it will start.  Sometimes it takes multiple tries for it to start but it does start.   Any suggestions of what might be causing this?
