Trouble starting I have a 1990 f150 Lariat 4x4 and am having trouble starting it in park and neutral. When I turn the key nothing will happen but lights and fuel pump will come on. I have to work the gear shift for the starter to engage. This is an automatic transmisson.

Hi

It sounds as though you have a problem with the starter inhibitor switch on the transmssion.

Bridge the terminals on the inhibitor and then see if that solves the problem to start with, then if so, you need to either adjust the inhibitor or the gear shifter.

From the sounds of it though, there may be a cable adjustment possible on the gear shifter.

Regards

Have trouble getting it out of park


Check that you have working brake lamps.
2001 the shift interlock and the brake lamps are the same circuit, so if the bulbs are burnt out, or the fuse is blown, the shift interlock will not work.
Try turning the key from off to start, press and hold the brake, shift into neutral, then start the truck. This is the shift interlock bypass directions from the owners manual.

If you turn the key to acc, nothing happens, if you turn it to on, nothing happens, but if you turn it all the way to start, it does star but when the key springs back like normal, it turns the truck off....


did you replace the switch or did you replace the ingnition cylinder (cylinder is the part the key goes in)the switch is what controls the start acc and keeps the car or truck running
