You didn't specify if it was a manual or an automatic.
Yes there is a switch at the gearshift lever its called the netural safety switch in which turns on the day time running lights (some newer cars) it won't let the car start in any gear unless it is in netrual or park, it also has a eletrical contact built into the switch in the reverse postion in which turns on the backup lights.
You will have to remove the floor consule to get access to it.
It is all in one switch you have to replace the complete switch which has slotted holes to adjust it so it will only start in netrual or park.
Very easy change (I think it only has 2 screws holding it.
At Autozone 3 speed automatic is $48.99, 4 speed automatic $118.99.
The back up light switch on the manual transmission is under the car mounted on the transmission itself (front wheel you might be able to get to it under the hood).
