2000 psd starting Issue

I have a 2000 psd f250 4wd 7.3. Im having a issue with starting it at times. Most times it fires right up. But some times all I get is a click from the engine compartment. and it won start till i take it from park to neutral. than it fires right up. At first i thought it was a starter issue dead spot or something. But Ive got under there and smacked starter with hammer and that hasnt done a thing..... Any ideas sensor or something? shifter going bad? Trannie problem?

I would assume maybe some sort of sensor that tells your computer something or another about the gear it's in.

Sounds like your transmission sensor is out of whack. Try lifting up on the shifter. There's some brass torx bolts underneath the column/dash that like to come loose and cause this issue.

No, stick your head up under the dash.
