I have a 2003 F-250 7.3L that I am having starting issues with. The problem appears to be related to the position of the gear indicator. A couple of times, when I moved the handle as far to the left in the PARK position the truck would start, now it just will not turn over at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Les.

a few things affect this on fords. shifter screws on the bottom of the shifter come loose. you can tighten them up from the bottom of the shifter.You have to put your head down by the pedals and look up at the steering column. *(#27 in the figure)

another thing that happens is that the shifter tube (#16) can crack and later will be broken or the shifter tube bushings get worn out (#25).

neutral safety switch could be out of adjustment. Turn the key to run and move the shifter into the neutral position. See if you can start your truck there. If you still can't get the truck to crank over, hold the brake pedal down and try moving the shifter around with the key in the start position. Be careful because if the engine does start you may be in drive or reverse and the truck will want to take off on you. That's why you need to keep the brake on.
