Is your ABS light blinking? There is a contact on the ignition cylinder that may have shorted out. Try fuse # 9 (I think) It should be blown. If you need to get home. turn key to on(not start), put truck in nuetral and then start. I had to do this once to get mine home. Take cover off of steering column and look for a tube with a couple of wires coming off. One of those wires goes up to the cylinder with a copper contact. The contact fits in a grove. Put it back in change the fuse and you should be good to go. Hope this helps.

Won't go into gear as in the shifter won't move out of park, or it just plain won't get into any gear at all?

Just because I kiss the prettiest girls and I drive my truck too fast, why does everybody want to kick my @ss?
