Question about Cars & Trucks
Truck would only start in neutral and now not at all. Battery is good.
Yes the neutral safety switch or neutral start switch it should be down by the steering mounted on the colum.

Depending on the year, some models have a switch on the base of the steering column if the shifter is up there..and on rthe shifter linkage on the transmission itself for the floor type..sometimes it can be adjusted on the mount but if its acting up..replace it.. good luck..

try checking you Park/Neutral safety switch. if that's faulty it will do exactly what you are saying and while you're at it test the ignition switch but i'm leaning towards the safety switch

Sounds like it may be a starter motor problem. If the brushes are worm to their limit sometimes it will work perfectly and sometimes it will be dead. If you tap the starter motor you may find it magically starts as the brushes make a bit more of a contact. Same goes for the solenoid which is attached to the starter. Other causes could be a faulty ignition switch, bad earth, terminal connections or park/neutral lockout switch.

The weld on the manual lever is known to break loose. First, with the wheels off the ground, with the lever in the park position, does the drive shaft lock in park? If yes or no sometimes, drop the trans pan. I bet the nut on the lever camd loose.
