Why do I have to wiggle it around in neutral to get it to start again?

sounds like the neutral safety switch. i have replaced a few on ford trucks. after a while they tend to wear out or get out of adjustment. but if you wiggle it around and it starts. my guess is the neutral safety switch. you didn't specify what kind of vehicle you have but there are a lot of videos on you tube that may show you how to do this. good luck

How do fix my 2005 chevy equinox

If the engine is cranking properly, then the problem either has to be in ignition or fuel delivery systems. And if you have an automatic, you might want to check the neutral safety switch for proper operation. And do not ignore the ignition switch.

Where is neutral switch on a 92 dodge caravan

Safety Switch Most neutral safety switches are combinations of a neutral safety switch and a backup lamp switch. Others have separate units for these two distinct functions. When the reverse light switch is not part of the neutral safety switch, it seldom needs adjustment, as it is directly activated by the transmission or the gear selector linkage.
f_ttat_t3.20.jpg Typical location of a neutral safety switch on a transaxle. Reprinted with permission of Ford Motor Company. A neutral safety switch allows current to pass from the starter switch to the starter when the lever is placed in the P or N position. Some neutral safety switches are nonadjustable. If these prevent starting in the P or N position and the gear selector linkage is correctly adjusted, they should be replaced.
To adjust a typical neutral safety switch:
  • Place the shift lever in neutral.
  • Loosen the attaching bolts for the switch.
  • Using the angling pin, move the switch until the pin falls into the hole in its rotor.
  • Tighten the attaching bolts.
  • Recheck the switch for continuity. If no voltage is present, replace the switch.
  • The switch sometimes controls the operation of the back-up lights also. With the engine off and the key on, put the selector in reverse position. Check the back-up lights to see that they are on. Then, check in the drive position to see that they are out.

The problem might actually be the neutral safety switch; which would still be covered under warranty. On second thought, the problem in it's entirety relating to the position of your gear selector regardless of root cause is a safety problem.
The vehicle needs to be returned to the dealer and the problem reported to the Technical Service Bulletin at the very least.
