Assuming it is an automatic trans, the neutral safety switch may have failed. The switch prevents you from cranking the engine in drive or reverse.

I am having problems with my ignition on my 1995 dodge ram pickup. It will not turn over with the transmission in park, but will with the transmission in nuetral. I replaced the nuetral safety switch, but...

not really
people who interfere with auto electrics are a gold mine for auto electricians

get the harness and electronics back to as near to original as possible so that problems are easier to fix

How to change ncc switch on durango

I will assume you mean the safety nuetral switch cause thats what it sounds like to me to be the problem. The safety nuetral switch is located on the transmission. Before changing it out find it and make sure it didnt come loose if it did all it needs is to be adjusted and retightend. If after adjusting it and tighting and the same problem persist the go ahead and change it out. Make sure the connection is all the way in also.

1999 Dodge V8 with 4WD

transfer case needs to be taken off and brought to a transmission specialist. I had the same problem with my 99 2500 diesel, and being a transmission specialist myself, i diagnosed that the shift forks and bearings and syncro's in my transfer case had failed and after figuring out how much each part would cost on my rebuild, it was cheaper to buy a brand new transfer case out of zumbrota transmission parts out of Minnesota. The transfer case costed me $995 dollars and my parts added up over $1,100 dollars.
