OD Shifter wires are probably broken. Check and or replace shifter. Thats where I would start.

Haven't seen a 2001 but should be the same as a 1999. Shifter lever with OD button is $58 at dealer. Three phillips head screws underneath the steering column holding the cover, remove it, then to remove the key cartridge, there is a pin bottom side of key, push it up and pull cartridge out, top cover comes off then, one pin or bolt holds the shift lever in, unplug connector. If the wire is bare just repair it or install new lever. Check it out before buying new lever, don't take long to do.

My mind works lightening fast.
One Flash and it's gone forever.
you can unplug the OD wire so you can drive the truck until your new one comes in.
Great write up and a real easy fix. The chaffed area was identical to the photo however two wires were chaffed and I only "discovered" the problem when I pressed the OD off and closed the short circuit and blew the fuse. Fortunately it happened before I pulled onto the open road.
This fix should be considered a maintenance item for any 7.3.
