PNP is the internal mode switch on that truck it's inside the transmission and the valve body will need to be removed to access. But first I'd apply the parking brake and make sure when I put it in gear the shifter cable is actually moving at the transmission and you should feel detent for every gear. If it's not moving the shaft in the transmission make sure the bolt is tight, if it not moving at all follow the cable back up to the steering column. If that's ok you may need the internal module switch. Thanks
