TRUCK WONT SHIFT FROM PARK

1997 Ford F-250 • 187,000 miles

I just replaced my steering column shift tube assembly on my 97 ford f 250. But if I start in park it wont shift but I can start in neutral and then I can shift. What did I do wrong?

Replaced with same year/model? Is brake pedal being depressed and key in RUN when moving from Park?

Yes replaced with same year/model. Brake is depressed. Key is in run position. If I put key in acc position I can shift to neutral and start truck and then shift into drive.

I found the problem I accidentally unplugged the neutral safety switch on the brake pedal
