When you shift it at the lever, does it actually engage into park? If so, it has to be the cable itself is either stretched, broken, or out of adjustment. If it is fully in park and wont start, chances are the neutral safety switch is bad.

I can't open the pic. If it is internal, look at the pic I attached and tell me aprox where it is located. Also, if you can save your image as a jpeg, it should open for me.

By the way, I feel confident you found the problem.

That looks like the adjuster off one of the clutch bands. If that is the case, and I think it is, my guess is one of the bands is blocking the linkage from shifting to park.

If it isn't showing park when you shift to it, that sounds like a range sensor. Was the part you posted from the band?

They have the range sensor unless you have a 2500 or 3500 series truck. Those actually have a neutral safety switch, but my information is conflicting. In one area of the manual, it indicates what I mentioned above. The next section indicates that only trucks with the 8.0L engine has one.

Thank you for the help if you come across info on a 46re with a range sensor other then the neutral saftey switch and it's location please let me know and if you think that could be anther reason why it will not lock down so you'd have to push the brake in to switch gears with engine running please let me know on that too
