It\'s right where the shifter cable goes into the shaft, look right next to the steering cloumn under the hood,the switch won\'t keep the car from moving tho,it just wouldn\'t start.But you could look there to make sure the cable hasn\'t broken or come unhooked. The cable goes to an arm about 3 inches long just make sure the arm moves when shifting.
As far as the shifter cable not staying attached to the ******, (AT), My solution was to shave the plastic end thinner so it will go further on the shifter rod. This will allow room for a washer and cotter pin to be attached to the rod. (holding the shifter cable in place. It's easier to remove the shifter arm as you will need to drill a small hole for the cotter pin. This is the cheapest solution that works. The shifter cable is over $40 and a headache to install. Hope this helps.
No, It sounds like it is working fine, just a little worn out, A lot of cars have to be coaxed into park to start. Just moving the shifter will do it, the switch itself is very sensitive, as you have found out. It only has to move a fraction to lose contact. It is a fairly easy job to change if it drives you nuts. But I wouldn't fix it till it breaks. It is located on the left side of the tranny where the linkage hooks up. Hope this helps.
There is a switch at the base of your shifter that prevents starting when transmission is in gear. Your switch is loose or broken. Remove console to access switch for repair. If you have questions, please let us know.
Turn the key on and depress the brake pedal and move the shifter to neutral and try it,keep the ignition turned to start and rock the shifter up and down some in neutral, If that doesn't help you will need to check the starter wires with a test light to see if power is getting to starter,it could be a starter,starter relay,Auto shut down relay,
The whirring sound may be coming from the starter. You can have it tested at Autozone to see whether or not the starter is operational. If it's not the starter, I would try to start the vehicle in another gear other than park or neutral. If it starts, you have a bad Neutral Safety Switch. If this part goes out, it can shut off the starting capabilities.
There are two torx bolts that hold the shifter to the column. You can see them with the lower column cover off (must first remove the ignition cylinder). If the lever is loose, these bolts are the first thing that I would check. That the identical problem on my villager.
