You'll have to crawl under the truck and see if the trans shift lever is fully in the park position. It may be a condition where the trans is indeed in "park" but the n/s switch has not fully closed it's contacts. Check to see if the switch can be loosened and adjusted manually. You can replace the switch w/out making a mess..... there's no tranny fluid involved in the process.

yeah check the shift cable / lever on the transmission, it is on the drivers side, just follow the cable down. it could be just something simple like the bracket is just loose or something.

yup i crawled under and moved the shifter at the tranny and it cliked further down into parking and the p light lit up, and started up in parking now. I adjusted the cable and its good now. this was the whole problem all this time after checking all fuses, replacing battery. can anyone look at the nut that attaches the shifter cable to the bracket that moves the tranny through the gears and tell me if it is just the nut by itself or it also has like a washer that is cut in the middle to keep it from loosening up. as it is in my truck now it just has the nut.


thanks to all.
