My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

I'm presuming this is the auto shift version? With the auto shift version, it will not allow a start because the shifter isn't in neytral. The likely cause is the shift motor is burned up and not moving the shifter.

Try turning the key to the on position, then go to off and back to on 6 times and see if the shifter will do a "reset" on the shifter. If not, see if you can bump the truck from the rear while turning the key on and that the transmission will move slightly to allow the shifter motor to try and move the shifter rod into neutral. If no luck, then there is no other option then to replace the shifter motor on the transmission.

You want a 5 star service and I want to provide a 5 star service. Please consider that I don't know your skill level as well as I can't see,
touch, smell, hear, or taste the vehicle/machine in question. Please provide as much detail as possible and I will provide as much back.

The system DOES NOT automatically give me credit from your deposit. A rating is REQUIRED. You are rating me for the information I provide,
not the website. I have no control over the site fees, site errors, category errors, or how long it took for a response for these reasons.

I am not an employee of this website, so please rate with a POSITIVE (green) rating for me to get credit for assisting you. You still pay
the website for negatives or by not rating at all. I just get nothing from that payment you made. So please rate each answer I provide.

I want you pleased with my service to you so please inform me before rating negative (red) and I will do my best to make it right. Follow
ups for same question are always free after ratings have been made.

I do have many workshop manuals, diagrams, etc that I pay to get access to out of my pocket. If one is needed, please ask and I will give
you an offer at my technician discounted cost to you for such manuals. I never charge above that cost.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you through Just Answer!
