Car in park turn key starter engages engine starts and you can hear the Bendix still spinning in the ring gear put car into drive and then they stop spending


Does the starter engage again when you go back to park ?
Shifting from park to drive would cut the circuit from the key switch to the starter. The neutral safety switch prevents you from cranking the engine in drive or reverse.
I would say the key switch is not turning off power to the starter when you go from start to run.

Gear shifter won't shift into reverse or park


When you "muscled it into neural" you broke the shifter. Most likely it will take a replacement shifter to repair.

2000 f150 not starting


I would start by checking to see if the battery cables are clean and tight. Look for broke or disconnected wiring. Is the shifter all the way in the park position? Chek to see if the starter motor pinion is jammed in flywheel ring gear. Starter solenoid might be faulty. Then check the ignition switch and system. Hope that Helps.

2010 f150 has power but won't crank, have no dash lights but radio works


Could be a stuck starter motor, get a hammer and tap lovingly on the starter housing.. Then give it a try. Failing that the automatic transmission safety lock might be engaged. Move the shifter into gear then back into park and try starting.

well first off if the car wont crank all the time this could mean that the flex plate could be missing teeth and the starter isn't engaging it, as for putting in gear it could be the shift linkage but it could also be a switch that engages when you press the brake to shift into gear, if, this car actually requires you to engage the brake

97 dodge neon turn key have lights but no crank or no noises


Is the car still in gear? If it is, then it will not start till you put the car in park. I've done this before and the same thing happened, had radio, lights etc...till I put car in gear and it started. Check the gear selector, if it's not in park, then put it in park and try to start. Hope that helps.

Sounds like an Ignition Module or similar device. Does it have an alarm? Turn the key to ON - not start - and put into Drive and then back into Park. It may be the shifter isn't fully engaged. Also, w/your FOOT ON THE BRAKE shift to Neutral and try to start it.

Won't turn over


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.
