Question about 2000 Chevrolet Malibu
This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.
·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

SOURCE: 1981 Corvette will not start
The neutral safety switch is located in the shifter housing.
Here is a link to a good article on this topic, that would beat an explanation from me.
Yes, it sounds like the NSS is the culprit.

The theft passlock is shutting your fuel off try this Put your key in turn it on dont start wait 10mins take key out wait 10seconds repeat 3 times total 30mins. If that dont work try another key do the same process. If this dont work a new ignition switch needs installed by a dealer because reprogramming is needed.Or You are right you can install a bypass switch bulldog.com will tell you how or take it somewhere where they install remote starts and they can do it
