Question STARTER/TRANSMISSION CONNECTION

Starter will not even click. Narrowed it down to something in transmission not allowing starter to operate. What are my options????

Starter doesnt really have anything to do with your tranny.
It might be your starter relay not working.

Mechanic told me over phone that the transmission is not "finding" neutral and therefore wont let the starter do its job. Can start the truck by jumping the solenoid. He adjusted the neutral safety switch on outside of transmission, that helped for one day but now he says it is some other kind of switch inside the transmission that is not allowing the tranny to find neutral

There is no neutral safety switch on this particular truck, only what's called a 'TR sensor'. THIS is the part that 'tells' the PCM what range the shift selector is in. The TR sensor on this particular vehicle is on the INSIDE side of the transmission, which I believe requires pan removal, and manual lever removal to service, which is a bit of a pain in the a** to say the least. I don't think I have EVER had issues with this part before, that I can remember. That said, You can try holding the key in the START position, and moving the selector through all ranges CAREFULLY WITH YOUR FOOT ON THE BRAKES until it starts. This should hopefully indicate how far out of adjustement the shifter linkage is. You didn't happen to hit anything underneath the truck that could've possibly bent something, could you?

Thanks for the response. No, didn't hit anything; just one morning went out and nothing when I turned the key to start. I jump the starter solenoid and it fires right up. Is there a way to bypass this TR sensor for now?

What about the same thing with a 2005 straight shift truck?

Figured it out. Fuse 113
