Check with your nearest dealership, there should be a recall on this very issue. Why replace it yourself when the dealership will do it for free, especially in this economy, save your money.

Okay, wish you would of listed the code # but thats okay, the way you explained it sounds like the gear selector switch is bad, this switch is located on the side of ******, the computer and ****** think its in d3 this is cause most of the time 90% of the time to a bad selector switch also called a neutral safety switch,

replace switch reset codes and check ****** fluid , not sure how far you drove like this but if fluid is brunt i would have it flushed, not drain and fill but flushed, a BG flush.

I think with a flush and selector switch you will be all set, good day.

My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't start. At first, I wiggled the gear shift and then it started, so I thought maybe it wasn't completely in park. I turned it off, it restarted as usual, but when I stopped...

It may the neutral safety switch licated usually where on the front lower engine compartment ..they get full of crud sometimes and just need minor adjustment...

My 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't start when in park but starts fine when in neutral. What do you suggest?

It sounds like your shifter cable may be out of adjustment, this is more common in chryslers, you may need to adjust the shifter to get it to start. also the neutral safety switch may be faulty. but when those go bad the car may not start at all.
