    Sorry, I originally posted this in the solution area.

    I have the same problem and it is not the steering wheel lock. There is
    a 5A fuse in the inside fuse box related to the brakes, domelight, etc
    that is blown. When replaced it blows instantly so there is some short.
    I put a 20A fuse in long enough to shift into gear then took it out and
    drove home where I am now stuck. For the 2 seconds the fuse was in I
    know it was burning the wire as I smelled it immediately. I have been
    trying to find the short but it is overwhelming as there is so much on
    that circuit. Any ideas?

Check the steering wheel--sometimes the security lock is pulled against the release mechanism due to pull from the wheel--solution is to pull turn your steering wheel one or another direction to relieve the pressure on the lock release) and WHILE STILL holding the steering wheel in this position (you'll feel the wheel attempting to return back to the pressure locked position) attempt to move the shift lever out of park.

Could be valve body problems, shift solenoid or the TCM. If all check out good then I'd overhaul the transmission.

Truck won't shift out of park unless engine is off


Usually a sign of a faulty brake switch or shift lock solenoid. The components would need to be checked for power.

Will not shift into gear from park with motor running, also cab lights and electric windows not working. Will start from neutral and then shift into gears.


Might want to start with checking your stop lamps & the fuse for the stop lamps.

The shift interlock is part of the stop lamp circuit on the 97-03 MY trucks, and without working stop lamps, the truck does not come out of park,

Not too sure what you mean by cab lights, is this the interior dome lamps or the instrumentation illumination ?

F150 gear shift will not change when starting


It is difficult to say what exactly your having an issue with unless you state the type of transmission. The motor may also be of benefit to know. Most automatics need to be in park when started and may be locked in place if you attempt to start a vehicle. You may have to shift it into park first with your foot on the brake, ignition on, and no starting attempt. Then try to start the vehicle(with your foot on the brake).

No SHift out of park


switch behind the brake pedal?? This send the signal for your brake lights and also activates the interlock to shift out of park.
