Tip & How-To about Chevrolet Lumina
Your car runs fine. Then 1 day you go out to start it and get no response. It won't crank. It won't even try to start. Nothing. What the heck is going on?
Try starting it in neutral. This trick can work on any make or model of any age.
There is a safety switch that will not allow the starter to engage in any gears, except park and neutral. Sometimes the shift lever indicates park, but the actual linkage is just barely in park. Enough to park the car and get your keys out, but not enough to trip that neutral safety switch.
You can, also, try firmly shifting in and out of park a few times. This may realign the indicator and the linkage. Good luck
