Customer Question

I have a 2010 f150 xlt 5.4, I was moving two weeks ago, went to back the trailer into my new driveway when my truck wouldn't go into reverse. It went to neutral and that was it, I couldn't get it Out of neutral
JA: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Looked through the owner's manual and found the brake interlock bypass and was able to get it into drive... I have treated and replaced brake switch, checked all fuses. With the cover off of the steering column I can see the physical location of the gear selector is in park. But it says neutral and the trick rolls..
JA: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Have you located both?
Customer: Yes I have
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I think that's about it

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.

So far this looks to be the shift linkage damaged, or loose or out of adjustment. Here are those steps to check and adjust, can you do that first and let me know the outcome.
