Gear Indicator Stuck

I have a 2006 F250 6.0, automatic transmission.

The gear indicator is stuck to the right of 1st gear. Not sure how this happened (just got it back from having a parrot kit installing it and the problem was there).

Any ideas on what they could have done to cause it and/or what to do to fix it? I can still shift it, but I just have to know P, R, etc...which is a pain.

Thanks,

Chad

Take off the bottom of the steering column, theres a little wire thats looped on there, if the wires off of the shifter theres your problem, or it might have gotten pinched and broken somehow.. you might need to take out the bezel around the guages and take the top off the steering column, check it out
