Mine did the same's really hard to get to but if you lay in the floor board and look up under the dash while moving the shifter you will see where it's moving...there will be a screw, that I think is a star head, that is probably lose. Mine fell all the way out and wouldn't go into park at all. Sorry for the vague description, it's been a while since it happened.

Perhaps the shift cable or warning indicator is out of adjustment. I am not familiar enough with Ford Trucks to say. There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You can get a one week subrcription or year subscription very cheap. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual try and get an online repair manual subscription.
