There's a starter relay on the left fender the case needs to be grounded for it to work.

If it's only starting in drive then your shift linkage must be out of adjustment.

That sounds EXTREMELY dangerous.
Starting and running vehicles on lifts is very common, what is way more dangerous is a newb tech at a dealer who doesn’t understand how to balance a vehicle on a lift!!!! I’ve seen one tip over it wasn’t pretty especially with a brand new powerstroke on it!!!!!

Sounds like worn or mis-adjusted shifter linkage, and not engaging the neutral safety switch properly. I would remove all the shift linage, clean lube and re-install then re-adjust everything.

Since this happened like overnight you might check your body mounts, something must have shifted to throw off the linkage.
