Truck turning off randomly

I have a '99 ford F250 7.3L. The truck just started randomly turning off while I am driving. It happened 3 times in a 1/2 mile drive. I've always had problems starting it in park, but can usually start it in neutral. I checked all the fuses and the battery terminals are clean. When this happens I can't start the truck until I turn the key all the way off then turn it back on.

I got advice from a friend that it's probably the starter switch, I just replaced the starter switch and now I cant start the truck at all. Also, I somehow got the shifter indicator moved over 1 position, so when it's in park, it's showing that it's in R. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with the problem starting it. I don't know how to get the gear position indicator back in the right position.

Another thing I noticed is that the WTS light doesn't turn on at all. Also, the check engine light turns in when i turn the key.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

Thanks, I'll have to check the fuses again. Any idea how to get my shift indicator back into the right position?
