Hi. Ford does have this problem with its shifter assemblies. Is your truck column shift or floor shift?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Floor shift but if it wet outside truck will be dead in am anyway?
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

I do not think wetness should effect the shifter. If that is the case you may have something else going on. But the floor shift models had an issue where the shifter would not tell the cluster that it was in park and the cluster would not power down and kill the battery.
