Possible fuse or brake light switch problem, see if brk. lights work, need a helper, you can set the park brake, turn the key 'almost' to the ON position but not quite, pull it out of park and into neutral, start the engine and drive to a repair shop if needed!

it was sorta strange,had several guys to try almost everything including a truck mechanic that put a screwdriver into steering column,said he was going to reset safety switch.but nothing worked till a friend from work ,a preacherman asked if he could put the hand of God on my truck?i said go for it,he did,then told me to start the truch,i did,then he said to press brake,he reached inside truck and moved the gear shift to drive?/"?surprise it worked,i thanked him ,drove home,i cut it off and tried it again...everything worked after several tries:)
