    OK do you mean the shifter wont move or when you shift the shifter into a gear the truck wont move?

    Aloha murdog94,
    the column shifter wont move...i got it out of gear,but now i have to leave it in neutral
    to shift to drive.its been over a week now,im afraid someones going to break in to my
    truck and drive it away...while in neutral my steering column wont lock so a key isnt necessary.

    I believe it's your brake sensor. I had this problem on a 94 gmc conversion van. You can turn the key about halfway forward and move the gear selector from park to neutral then start it, then shift to drive or reverse. I did this for awhile before I ended up selling it. It drove me nuts until some one told me about this, I was stuck 3 hours from home when this first happened to me. Play around with it and atleast it's a work around until you fix it.
