Question about 1999 Ford F150 Regular Cab

1 Answer

Gear shift indicator

The other day i put it in park and a bolt fell from under the dashboard. When i tried to start it - it wouldn't do anything. I had to turn the key, put it in neutral in order to start it. I've been having trouble with the gear shift indicator adjustment but i can't figure out where this bolt goes???
The bolt is a star bolt like the one near the gear indicator adjustment wheel...

It may go on the end of the shifter shaft the best advise I can give is to lay under dash and have someone move the shifter and you should see something move that is missing the bolt becaus it pivots

I put a 95 s10 blazer trans in my 94 fullsize blazer can it be done and work


If it is binding it may just need the pinch bolt loosened and repositioned to eliminate the binding condition.

If it has to do with Park or Neutral start switch- that is on the column independent of linkage.

If the gear shift indication is off, that is a cable link to the dashboard beneath the trim at the bottom of the dash.

Well, if it is doing all of that, the Check Engine light has GOT to be SCREAMING at you! Continuing to try to force the vehicle to operate under such conditions will only cause further damage to the vehicle. I would recommend getting the thing to where you can scan your onboard computer and find out what is going on.

You may have two problems here.

Car won't start and battery is good.


This is a common problem with all cars. Try to start the car in neutral. The neutral safety switch will not allow the starter to engage in any gear except park and neutral.
Another option is to firmly shift in and out of park several times. Just because the indicator shows park on the dashboard doesn't mean the neutral switch agrees with it. This firm shifting may realign the switch with the dasboard indicator. Good luck
