Starter won't stop engaging when turned on in "Park".
Got a weird problem and wonder if anyone can help. Here are the details:
1999 7.3 Diesel Super Duty Power Stroke
When the truck is in park and you turn the key to start position, it starts the vehicle and keeps engaging the starter. If put into neutral and start the key to start position, it starts normal and you can put it into reverse or drive and is fine. But if you stop and put into Park position, it engages the starter again. So I have to stop in neutral or reverse and turn off key before I put it into park. With the key off, in park, it doesn't send power to the starter. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
A friend said it could be a wire touching in the starter or near the starter. If so, how do I find it?
