Sounds like linkage on the transmission is stuck,will shifter move at all ?

Yes the shifter does move...the truck still runs.. It did this once before and I shut it off and turned it back on and tried and it worked. But this time my ignition was stuck and wouldn't allow !e to turn truck off.

May be a bad iginition switch if it is jamming.

But wud that cuz it not to do anything when I am trying to put it in gear? Or is it a linkage and ignition you think?
