Default Auto shift indicator not lining up?

Hi all,
In my newly purchased Ranger I notice that the shift indicator in the dash is not lining up with the appropriate indicator it actually sits about 1/4" off to the right. Can anyone tell me if and where an adjustment cable is. The tranny is new was replaced 2kmls before I purchased the truck. My name says all the details. MTIA

I know this sounds weird but do this to turn of the reminder

Deactivating/activating the BeltMinder feature

Read steps 1 - 9 thoroughly before proceeding with the
deactivation/activation programming procedure.
The BeltMinder feature can be deactivated/activated by performing the
following procedure:
Before following the procedure, make sure that:
• The parking brake is set.
• The gearshift is in P (Park) (automatic transmission) or the neutral
position (manual transmission).
• The ignition switch is in the OFF position.
• All vehicle doors are closed.
• The driver’s safety belt is unbuckled.
• The parklamps/headlamps are in OFF position (If vehicle is equipped
with Autolamps, this will not affect the procedure).

1. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN (or ON) position. (DO NOT
START THE ENGINE.)
2. Wait until the safety belt warning light turns off. (Approximately 1–2
minutes.)
• Steps 3–5 must be completed within 60 seconds or the procedure will
have to be repeated.
3. Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt three times, ending with the
safety belt unbuckled. This can be done before or during BeltMinder
warning activation.
4. Turn on the parklamps/headlamps, turn off the parklamps/headlamps.
5. Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt three times, ending with the
safety belt unbuckled.
• After step 5 the safety belt warning light will be turned on for three
seconds.
6. Within seven seconds of the safety belt warning light turning off,
buckle then unbuckle the safety belt.
• This will disable BeltMinder if it is currently enabled, or enable
BeltMinder if it is currently disabled.
7. Confirmation of disabling BeltMinder is provided by the safety belt
warning light flashing four times per second for three seconds.
8. Confirmation of enabling BeltMinder is provided by:
• The safety belt warning light flashing four times per second for three
seconds.
• Followed by three seconds with the safety belt warning light off.
• Once again, the safety belt warning light will flash four times per
second for three seconds.
9. After receiving confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is
complete.

Oh for the love of God, I Love You Man. Oddly Only my Fords do that crap well and the VW. Porsche, No, Scion, No, Bertone, No, Ford Holy crap I thought the F150's were bad, it turns out it was a toned down version. I am surprised the FCC did not have anything to say about the little bugger.
Also if you know anyone looking for a splash I saw one local to me on Clist and I posted it in the Class section. It is a sharp looker, check it out.

Oh man, you just saved me some work! Now I just need to find the nut.

I owe you a beer!


THanks

I have determined that most mechanical / electrical challanges are directly connected to the nut that connects the steering wheel to the drivers seat.

So where about is that located? Does anything need to be removed to get to it?

If you lay on your back and look straight up center above the steering shaft... about even with the back lip of the dash. The adjustment wheel is about the size of a dime the shaft is about an inch long by 1/4 inch wide. Get a good flashlight and you should see it. Mine was black wheel and shaft with white housing and a 1/4 inch nut holding in all in place.
