so he took the truck to a shop and the mechanic said that he thinks its a safety switch were his words in the steering column that allows you to start in neutral that went out.

Mine did the same thing a month ago. The transmission position sensor on the side of the transmission corrodes in the connector causing a short in the starter crank circuit Mine was bad enough one of the pins broke off when I disconnected the connector. I had to replace the sensor as well as the connector. I replaced one other one for the same problem when I was a mechanic.
