No start unless crossing solenoid

As the title states got my truck back from the transmission shop and today they truck would do nothing when I turn the key... But when I take a screw driver and jump the solenoid on the fender it fires right up... Would be the starter or the solenoid on the starter?

If it's an auto, try starting with trams selector in neutral.

That I forgot to try... Wouldn't that be the issue if my indicator was a little off? It's perfectly in the middle of the P

The selector switch on the trans is out of adjustment... even if the indicator on the dash is where it is supost to be.

Your NSSW (Neutral Safety SW) isn't part of the indicator. It's actually On the trans so, one has little to do with the other if they're out of "sync". This is something the tranny shop should be responsible for though! Take it back and have them adjust it properly for you.

You may have to put the selector in R or D if N doesn't work but, the first thing I would try it to hold it up Past Park (or really, on either side)

Yeah last night I tried holding in every gear to start the thing and nothing. Not even a click bit the second I touch the solenoid on the fender it fires right. If its something to do with the linkage and safety switch I want to have a good argument to prove that's whats wrong to the tranny mechanic. The funny thing is the day the shop had my truck done I got a call saying my stater or solenoid is going out...

When you say "touch the solenoid", you mean "jump" - right?

Because if you're just tapping the solenoid to jar it, and it starts, then I'd say "no" it's Not the NSSW. BUT if you mean jump then I'd still go back to the tranny shop (how did they start it? What did they think was wrong?). Maybe the NSSW got disconnected altogether..

Yeah sorry I should have clarified. I Take a screw driver and jump the solenoid and that's how they said they started it. They tried saying my solenoid on my starter must be going bad which is ironic cuz it work fine before I dropped the truck off

By jumping that solenoid you are proving that the starter and starter solenoid are working. That is basically a solenoid for the starter solenoid.
